CSX Closes Locomotive Shop in Indianapolis

For now it appears that CSX plans to continue humping operations at Avon Yard near Indianapolis, but the railroad will cease doing locomotive repair work there.

Located on the St. Louis line of CSX, the former New York Central yard and shops are situated west of Indianapolis.

A CSX spokesman said some employees are expected to be furloughed although he wouldn’t say how many. The locomotive repair work will cease immediately.

Avon is one of 12 hump classification yards on the CSX network seven of which have seen their hump operations shuttered this year with more expected to close later.
