    Prolly needed to move the train to Philadelphia for whatever reason and it was easier to work with CSX than Amtrak to do it. Don't freak guys, there's not going to be a CSX+NS merger anytime in the future...

    More than likely it was a joint NS/CP Rail inspection train. D&H/CP run a pair of freights down the exB&O Philly Line.
