July 20, 2022

CSX Action in Clinton

December 23, 2021

Veteran railroad photographer Bob Farkas often makes images of CSX trains in Clinton on the New Castle Subdivision. That’s not surprising given it is just a few miles down the road from his home in Canal Fulton.

In this series we get a perspective of CSX trains in various locations, including at the far west end of Warwick Yard. Other vantage points include Warwick Park, the east end of the yard and the area near Warwick Tower.

All of the images were made during 2021 and offer a snap shot of Class 1 railroad operations in the era of precision scheduled railroading of longer and fewer trains.

Coming Out of the Dark

November 28, 2021

With a background of dark green leaves and shadows it appears that CSX road slug 2252 is coming from a dark place. The back story on this image is that train Q394 had motive power problems while traveling between Clinton and Akron. The motive power normally used on the D750, which is based at Warwick Yard in Clinton, was sent to tow the consist of the Q394 to Warwick. The image was made on July 2, 2015. The 2252 was originally built in December 1962 as a GP30 for the Gulf, Mobile & Ohio.
