CSX Changes Some Train Symbols

CSX has again changed the prefixes used by some of its trains. Merchandise freight trains are now being referred to with M symbols rather than Q symbols.

It is at least the third change CSX has made to train identifier labels within the past year. Earlier this year it began using the prefix “L” for local trains. It also uses the prefix “I” for intermodal trains.

Previously, locals were identified by a letter corresponding to the division in which they operated. Intermodal trains were once identified with the “Q” prefix.

An online report also indicated that coal trains have been given the prefix “C.”
