on many of the former prr lines ns inherited from conrail, locomotives are required to have cab signals to lead. what this means to the casual observer is that mostly former conrail units, and oes ns bought since the merger, are used as leaders. any "foreign" units would be buied n the middle of the consist. the only exceptions i know of are certain csx units (mostly ex conrail or bought since the merger) which have comptable cab signals and are allowed to lead ns trains.

in some cases, notably the conrail cleveland line and fort wayne lines west of coway, pa, and the conemaugh line east of freeport, pa, there re no lineside signals except at control points. all sgnal indications at oter points are transmitted through th rails and picked up by the cab signal equipment.....

that routing was very common during the conrail days. almost everything to and from the big 4 used the former new york central mainline out of downtown cleveland. the current csx line east of berea was a branchline used mostly for overflow traffic to avoid congestion on the other line.

If you are going to take telephotos, than you need to use a tripod.
