CSX’s Chicago Hub operates out of six terminals in the region. It will take two programs to get a good handle on the operations of this Midwest Hub. In Volume 1 we will see the CSX Bedford Park Intermodal Terminal as well as the Belt Railway of Chicago and hot spots such as Blue Island, St. Anne and Pine Junction, Burns Harbor and State Line.

These trains and locations were shot between 1995 and 1998, so CSX and Norfolk Southern have not yet taken over Conrail. That split brought so many changes to the Chicago railroad scene in the East.

    In volume 1, we begin with a 2 unit mixed freight crossing the diamond led by engines 8597 and 8524, followed by a quick meet, then the camera cuts to July of 1995 as a 3 unit container train known as Q137 arrives at Bedford park. Moving onto the west end of the belt railway of Chicago yard, as a 3 unit lash up with 5914 in the lead makes a back up move to the service tracks. This yard is the main terminal for Sealand containers. Somewhere in December of 1995, a look at the west end of the Bedford park yard is included. Some of the semi trucks are included as well. All is really quiet at the belt railway is shown, as well as 5914 and it’s assistants resting. Moving on, a 2 unit lash up is on an autorack. It is led by engines 6150 and SD40-2 number 8455. This location is at Porter Indiana. A highlight is a pair of Indiana harbor belt SW9 switchers numbers 9004 and 9003 are on an transfer run as it is carrying autoracks on its way west out of Gibson yard as it heads for Blue Island yard.The program comes to a close as Union Pacific SD40-2 number 2991 is leading a mixed freight with Dash 8 40-CW number 9401 and Burlington Northern 5013 in the consist on CSX train Q351 from Buffalo to the Chicago and Northwestern’s Proviso Yard.
