Ready, Set, Stop

Fostoria Drag 11

Three CSX trains are stopped on the Columbus Subdivision in Fostoria waiting for clearance to proceed. Track work being performed on the CSX east-west Willard Subdivision made waiting trains a common sight on CSX and Norfolk Southern.

The train on the left was awaiting clearance to take the southeast connection to go east on the Willard Sub. The train in the middle wanted to go north (railroad west) across the Willard Sub and onto the Pemberville Subdivision to Toledo. The train on the right wanted to take the southwest connection and go west on the Willard Sub.

If you look carefully on the far right edge, you’ll see a fourth CSX train, a yard job between assignments.
