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.
