    Yes, the "K" trains are usually just some sort of unit trains...

    CSX use the K designation for bulk commodity trains that are not Coal or Grain.

    Examples of commoditys that fall under the K designation are Coke, Iron Ore, Trash, Molten Sulphur, Phosphates and virtually any other bulk commodity.

    Those two GE's in the picture don't seem to be the same type engine. Could you tell me their types? Thanks.

    Well, actually, I just thought the radiators looked different. The "hammerhead" part.
