Today’s Chessie Sampler

February 28, 2020

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
