CSX Running Daily Freight on ex-Clinchfield

CSX has resumed run-through freight service on its former Clinchfield Railroad route, but the move is expected to be temporary.

Trains magazine reported that trains Q696/Q697 are running between Cincinnati and Hamlet, North Carolina.

The magazine noted that trains have operated the full length of the Clinchfield in recent months although those moves were sporadic unit train moves and CSX has yet to re-establish the crew bases at each end of the route.

Nos. Q696/Q6967 are currently the only regularly scheduled daily trains on former Clinchfield.
