On Wednesday, March 18, several of the Loop railfans gathered trackside at Sterling. CSX train activity was sparse.

Eastbound Q016 entered the interlocking at 4:07 p.m. That train is an eastbound double stack intermodal pulled by CSX 5479 and 5455.

The next two trains were westbounds. CSX coal train T410 for Duke Power went over Kauffman Avenue at 6:39 p.m. It was followed by CSX empty oil train K059 at 6:55 pm.

I had to boost the ISO for the last two photos. All got quiet again, so I headed for home.
