CSX Transportation comprises many former railroad routes and names. We start in the Cincinnati area, with some shots at Queensgate yard, and the Union Terminal. Then we head across the River to the former C&O and see action along the Ohio River eastward. One day is spent during fall colors shooting trains along this line including the Russell area and along the Ohio River. Then we sample a couple of scenes on the New River, and head eastward and visit more West Virginia, and Maryland locations. These include Point of Rocks, Harpers Ferry, and Cumberland. At Green Springs we see a staged meet of Amtrak and Potomac Eagles vintage Alco FPA-4, and a B&O GP9 and see lots of freight action on the CSX mainline. We also see a shot at Hyndman Tower, and the Viaduct Over the old Western Maryland from the Cab of the Western Maryland Scenics FPA-4 as it goes under a CSX train. Then we head to the south to see some action in 1992 on the former Clinchfield Railroad, including a couple of scenes at Copper Creek Trestle, an iconic location along the Clinchfield.
There is a nice selection of older power, as well as some power that’s less than a year old. Several towers are seen, including Covington, Limeville, Russell, Viaduct (Cumberland), and Hyndman.
