The third volume on our popular “Sunrise/Sunset” series takes you to the busy triple-track mainline at Cincinnati, Ohio, where 12 routes radiating in and out of town are squeezed through a funnel called Winton Place. Here CSX, Norfolk Southern, Indiana & Ohio, and Amtrak trains compete for signals and switches, three-way meets are a regular occurrence, and directional running puts trains on competitors’ rails to ease the congestion!

Pentrex set up in the pre-dawn hours of June 28, 2000 to capture 15 hours worth of action from sunrise to sunset. Among the many interesting moves that came our way were a CSX special passenger train, steel and coal trains, the Juice Train, Triple Crown trains, and a working Loram Rail Grinder. We recorded 58 trains, many with a fascinating array of motive power. CSX presented an incredible variety of diesels, with numerous units on lease, and post-merger Conrail power was in use on both CSX and NS.

Train symbols and numbers are given for all movements showing where freights originated and where they’re headed. Plus, a schematic drawing and explanation of the signal system shows just how this busy junction is operated. If variety is what you want in your railroad entertainment, this show will exceed your expectations!

    Although not a big fan of run-by videos. This is an exception. This was film during a time that NS and CSX had an interesting assortment of motive power. Did not know much about Cincinnati until watching this. A great description of signals was also presented. Great narration and a diagram are included. I would suggest this video to anyone.

    So much to love about this! Pentrex does a GREAT job of explaining the junction and what the signal indications mean. So many different types of trains captured here of Amtrak, NS, CSX and I&O. I appreciated how Pentrex rented an elevated platform to capture the action at Winton Place given that under normal circumstances you can’t see everything going on.
