Conrail Dash 9s i havent seen ever to be honest in Trainz, nor did they exist. Conrail only had Dash 8-40CW's.

As far as the consist with tankers your seeing that is more than likely an Ethanol train. Trains are required to have a spacer car at the head end between the locomotives and the first car.
