CSX Operated Kentucky Derby Train

CSX kept alive the tradition of operating passenger specials to the Kentucky Derby.

The CSX Derby train arrived about noon on Saturday in Louisville, Kentucky, at Central Avenue near Cardinal Stadium.

The train was reported to have used R.J. Corman track between Lexington and Anchorage, Kentucky. It stopped in Louisville for 15 minutes to unload those heading over to Churchill Downs to take in a day at the races.

An online report said the train, which was led by three CSX F40 locomotives in the Baltimore & Ohio –inspired livery CSX unveiled last year for its executive train fleet, left Louisville after discharging its passengers.

After the race, the passengers were taken by bus back to Lexington. The train also featured a theater car on the rear.

Reportedly, the CSX executive train is going to run on Wednesday from Buffalo, New York, to Chicago, with an approximately noon arrival in Willard.
