Default CW ID on 161.265 (AAR 77)

I monitor both Norfolk Southern (NS) and CSX Railroad. When I am sitting in the parking lot of my workplace during lunch listening to the CSX comms, it stopped on AAR 77 (161.265) and I heard a CW ID, before it resumed scanning. It sounds like it may be a repeater/PBX.

Probably a base station identifying itself. Sounds like it might be a yard channel with a base station for the yardmaster. CSX does it here on the yard channels (008, 012, 028, 070, etc)
