Heading Out of Seville

May 6, 2020

Traffic on the CSX line that operates out of Sterling to Cleveland and Lorain can be rather sparse these days so let’s go back a few years.

It is July 2, 2004 and CSX GP38-2 No. 2801 is leading a train southbound out of Seville.

The line split at Lester with one branch going to Lorain and another to Cleveland.

Now the line where this image was made is seldom used with CSX running a local out of Cleveland to pick up and deliver cars to shippers along the line.

CSX Trains in Warwick in July 2004

February 26, 2020

It’s July 2004 and CSX is more than a decade into the YN2 livery era. The gold, blue and gray livery adorned thousands of CSX locomotives and some called it “bright future” while others used the term “hockey stick.”

In the top image GP38-2 No. 2910 leads an eastbound through Clinton (Warwick) on July 21.

In the bottom image, SD40-2 No. 8088 leads a westbound through Warwick on July 23.

It was also an era before wide cab locomotives became the standard.
