CSX Shoving Platform

This CSX 9491 shoving platform and the HLCX 6213 was working on the North end of the CSX yard in Montgomery, AL.
The 9491 is actually a remote control receiver unit. The HLCX is being run remotely and it doesn't have remote control installed. You can see in view the big MU cable on the front of unit attached to car.
 
Nice catch. I'd never seen one hooked up to a loco for operation, but did catch one in Brunswick, MD on the tail end of a frieght back in Dec '05.
