Phosphate train  Contributor's Pick!       
One of the sporadic moves to run on the D&H was a phosphate train that originated in Floridas Bone Valley on CSX. It was usually symbolled 751, and had run through CSX power. This time, its a pair of Seaboard System SD 40-2s, which we see behind a pair of GATX lease units at the north end of Dyes Siding, which was on the grade about a mile south of Belden Tunnel. It has since been removed, thought the signal mast remains.
