An odd helper set for sure, this ENG move was used to push this hopper train up the west slope due to engine problems on the head end power. I don't know the details of how this unit got wrecked, but it was eventually repaired and survived to become CSX 5955, but has since been retired. Note the EOT being used as there were no working headlights to use as a marker on the 5071. In this scene the ENG has just cut away from the hopper train at MO in Cresson, Pa.
