CSX V651 brings a empty grain train from Aberdeen, NC off the ACWR down the hill in front of the hump tower at hamlet yard Hamlet, NC on its way to be reloaded with corn.
The late 90's and early 2000's were a great time to visit Hamlet, NC it always seemed to be a mixed bag of power.

Looks like a scene from the Seaboard System era, except for the small CSXT stencils.
