A pair of visitors from the east help out a classic Heritage 2 C44-9W on a westbound manifest at Leyden. CSX classifies these units as ES44AHs. They are essentially ES44ACs, but with a few minor differences. First off, they weigh 432,000 pounds instead of 415,000 pounds. They also have software tweaks that, combined with the increased weight, provide for a higher tractive effort at lower speeds.
