First Outing of 2023

May 24, 2023

My first railfan photography outing of 2023 occurred on Jan. 19 in Clinton. In a rare occurrence, there were three trains in about 20 minutes. Here are four images from the outing.

In sequence they are CSX 861 leading a westbound. CSX 521 in on the point of an  eastbound passing the westbound home signal.

CSX 521 is shown in a roster shot and CSX 6415 with train L20 is pushing two cars east perhaps on their way to Jones Chemical near Barberton.

Of Western Maryland Heritage

May 19, 2023

It’s a CSX locomotive but of Western Maryland heritage. No. 6220 was still in its Chessie System colors as it led a westbound in Clinton in 1991.  Note the Seaboard unit trailing that also is in its original livery.

CSX in Winter Two for Tuesday

May 16, 2023

Here are two from Jan. 31, 2015. In the top image CSX 918 leads a westbound in Clinton. This sunny view is generally unphotographable at any other time of year because of the shadows from the trees and brush when they have leaves on them. 

In the bottom image, CSX 385 is on the point of a westbound in Clinton that will soon pass Warwick Park, the site of many Akron Railroad Club picnics over the years.

Plenty of Color on the Rails

May 12, 2023

The colorful autumn leaves have fallen, but there is still color on the rails. CSX 6387, CSX 6661, and Baltimore & Ohio 4125 are in Clinton in January 1987. None of these units, though, are wearing a CSX locomotive livery just yet.

B&O Two for Tuesday

April 25, 2023

It is the late 1960s, and I am standing on the platform of Akron Union Depot.  Baltimore & Ohio No. 3693 is eastbound on the westbound main.

If you look closely in the distance to the left of the train, another locomotive is also eastbound with trailers on flat cars. Most likely the 3693 is on the westbound track is to let the other B&O eastbound pass it. That is the Erie Lackawanna passenger station on the right. 

In the bottom image, B&O 7597 is leading an eastbound train in  through Warwick Yard in Clinton on July 29, 1982.

One Day in Warwick Yard

March 20, 2023

Westbound Baltimore & Ohio No. 6947 is in Warwick Yard on May 8, 1982. The next track on the right is the scale track used to weigh coal trains. Today this track is used as a long siding. On the far right is the eastbound main.

Around the Curve in Clinton

March 11, 2023

CSX SD50 No. 8612 is eastbound in Clinton on March 24, 1997. Visible through the trees at left is Warwick Tower, which today can no longer be seen from where I took this image because of trees that have grown up along the south (left in photo) side of the tracks. The 8612 was built in January 1985 for the Seaboard System and later upgraded by CSX to become an SD50-3.

Trio of CSX Locomotives in Clinton

March 7, 2023

Here is a trio of photos made in Clinton on June 4, 2022. In the top image, CSX 6248 is in Warwick where it is providing motive power for a local based there.

In the middle image is a container train pulled by CSX 7010 heading westbound. The bottom image is a view of CSX 887, which is serving as the distributed power unit for the aforementioned container train.
