Photo of CSX Selkirk Hump Pusher
CSX Selkirk Hump Pusher

CSX MT6 slug 1008 apparently started out life in 1958 as a PRR Alco RSD12 but was kit bashed by Conrail into a slug in the late '70s and then sometime in the '80s had its Alco truck replaced with EMD trucks. Here it is paired with ex-L&N SD40-2 at the west end of the Selkirk receiving yard getting ready to tie onto a freight to push it over the hump hidden behind "Ben's Bridge" in the distance.
