At Work With NS Fort Wayne Line Locals

March 3, 2020

Today we pay another visit to the Fort Wayne Line of Norfolk Southern to watch the locals at work.

In the top image local C03 is rolling eastbound on Feb. 19 through Burton City, which is located between Orrville and Massillon.

On the point is GP38-2 No. 5358, which is typical motive power for a local.

In the next photo down the C03 is shown going away with NS 3380, an SD40-2, and NS 5801, a GP38-3, facing westward.

In the next set of photographs, which are posted below, we’ve relocated to Massillon and are watching local C67 at work.

The motive power for this train is SD40E No. 6349 and G38-2 No. 5638.

In the top image the train is splitting the signals at CP Mace on the northwest side of Massillon.

The middle image is a roster shot while the bottom image shows the train drifting downgrade to work an industry.

4-Axle Power

February 3, 2020

CSX often uses four-axle locomotives for local train service and yard work.

Shown above is No. 2000, a GP38-3 currently assigned to CSX local D750.

It was captured at work on Jan. 14, 2020 at Warwick on the New Castle Subdivision.
