Question by Miranda: Which CSX locomotive(s) pulls the Tropicana “Juice Train” that rolls through Mount Royal Station in Baltimore?
I’m looking for specific locomotive information: model, manufacturer, etc–for use in modeling the Juice Train. Also, if anyone knows, I’d be curious to know what other trains run through that station (they no longer stop there), and which locomotives pull them.

Power consists for trains change all the time.They don’t run the same engines on a train everyday.When they build a train they assign power to it,so it could be anything.Where i work it’s a hot train when it comes through so it usually has newer power on it.Engines such as GE C44 and C45 AC’s are common.Also EMD SD70’s are used.They are DPU(distributed power) trains so the GE’s are used as the controlling power on the front and rear.
