Did anything happen that would require detouring a CSX train off its home

This evening at 8pm a solid CSX hopper train went west through
Christiansburg. It consisted of four CSX engines and about 100 CSX round
bottom hoppers. Having watched trains at Christiansburg for about thirty
years, I have never seen a complete train from another railroad. Does
anyone know anything about this? Is this as uncommon as I believe it to be?
