UP symbol KATCI is a run-through from the CSX that originates in Atlanta and is primarily domestic containers, but its main claim to fame is the block of Tropicana reefers that typically is placed right behind the power.

The Tropicana loads originate at its plant in Bradenton, Florida, where CSX picks up for delivery throughout the U.S.  CSX runs solid trains of Tropicana traffic from Florida to the New York market, where other markets get smaller blocks of these distinctive freight cars.
