Trailing surprise
Title:  Trailing surprise
Description:  CSX had been in operation for about a year at this time, and power was starting to really mix up, as well as get renumbered. It was a mess, but some intresting things showed up in unexpected places, such as this partly patched SCL unit on UBB 256.
