Update on CSX Kent Track Work

May 29, 2012

Here are a few views of the track work progress for the CSX undercutting below the Wheeling & Lake Erie’s Cleveland Subdivision in Kent.

In the first couple of photos, note the A.R.C. lettering on the cement silo. “Akron Railroad Club” maybe 🙂 🙂

CSX 78 leads the Q394 in these two views from the W&LE bridge abutments. The white ballast “road” on the left will be the Shelly Materials lead.

CSX 7778 leads a grain train as seen from ground level.

The ground level view looking west shows how much the tracks are being undercut.
Looking east, W&LE 105 leads the northbound Solon train over the CSX tracks.
