Early in the CSX Era in Clinton

July 20, 2022

It is still early in the CSX era in Clinton in April 1998. CSX No. 8404 and former Baltimore & Ohio No. 6608 have an eastbound in hand. Scenes such as this had begun to vanish by this date.

Eastbound in Clinton on Independence Day

March 18, 2022

It’s Independence Day 2021 but it’s not a holiday on the railroad as goods still need to move. In the top image, an eastbound manifest freight with a cut of auto rack cars up front passing the motive power for the local based at Warwick Yard. The bottom photo shows the two locomotives assigned to the local, which is not working today.

Gotta Fix That Headlight

It is early in the CSX era on the former Baltimore & Ohio Chicago-Pittsburgh mainline at Warwick Yard in Clinton. The train has stopped and a crew member has gotten out to repair and/or clean the headlight.

No. 6164 is a GP40-2 that was built for the Chesapeake & Ohio in 1978 where it carried roster number 4265.

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.

Another CSX Train in Clinton

July 27, 2021

We’re stepping back a couple of decades to April 1996 to watch a westbound passing beneath the Ohio Route 21 bride in Clinton. The Baltimore & Ohio color position light signals are a dead giveaway that this is not a recent image.
