One Day on the R.J. Corman

May 23, 2021

This series of images focuses on R.J. Corman EMD MP15AC No. 1410 workings train, Z613, to Warwick and return on May 7, 2021.

In sequence we see the 1410 northbound as it approaches the CSX yard in Warwick. Also on hand is CSX GP40-2 No. 6415 on the D750, which is bringing a covered hopper to be added to Z613.

Then we see the 1410 southbound after leaving CSX’s yard. In short order it passes Warwick Tower and then cruises through Canal Fulton on the Corman’s Cleveland Subdivision.

First Day of May Delights

May 6, 2021

Nice weather for the first day of May 2021 has railroad photographs out to catch what they could find in Northeast Ohio. Here are a trio of images made on the CSX New Castle Subdivision west of Akron.

In the top image, a Canadian National SD75I leads train Q276 around the curve in downtown Warwick on the single track segment.

In the middle we see AC44CW No. 402 on the point of an eastbound in Barberton.

Finally, GP40-2 No. 6415 sits in Warwick at a new fueling facility. This unit is stored here between runs of local D750. The apparatus visible toward the rear of the locomotive is a plug in for the crankcase heater.

2 Things No Longer Used by CSX

June 30, 2020

There are two things in this image that are no longer in use by CSX but let’s not get ahead of the story just yet.

This image of a container train eastbound in Warwick was made on Oct. 13, 1996.

Lead unit CSXT No. 5891 is a GE B36-7 that was built in July 1985 for Seaboard System.

It has since been retired from the CSX roster although locomotive leasing firm NRE has it available. Just check out their website.

As for the other item no longer used by CSX, that would be the color position light signal.

The Look of the Seaboard

April 16, 2020

The early CSX era like the early Conrail era was notable for sightings of predecessor railroad motive power that had served another region of the country.

On the former Baltimore & Ohio line though Akron that mean seeing locomotives from various southern railroads, including Seaboard System

When this image was made in September 1988 CSX U36B No. 5742 still wore its Seaboard livery.

The unit was built for Seaboard in April 1971 and is shown leading a westbound train in Clinton (Warwick).
