Let’s go back a few decades to a time when what is today the CSX New Castle Subdivision was operated by the Chessie System.

In the top image, an eastbound led by Baltimore & Ohio GP40-2 No. 4156 leads a steel coil train through Sterling in November 1981.

The middle image was made in Akron in December 1979. B&O SD40-2 No. 7613 leads a westbound beneath Interstate 76 near South Street.

The bottom image was made at Easton in March 1988 and shows an eastbound led by B&O GP40 No. 6088

One Day on the Hill

February 20, 2020

The hill near Home and Tallmadge avenues in Akron has long been a favorite spot of photographers to capture trains on film or megapixels.

Shown above is Baltimore & Ohio GP40-2 No. 4444 leading a CSX office car special eastbound on the hill.

The roster number of the locomotive alone would make it interesting, but the photographer suggested this may have been one of the first moves of a CSX business car train.

The image was made on April 9, 1987.
