A little while later, empty ethanol train K683 climbs westbound up the .89 percent South Byron Hill at the same location (Beaver Meadow Rd Crossing).

This is technically a NS symboled train but it was a CSX train. Its NS N71 at west brownsville pa leaving the NS mon line and heading across the river to get back to the CSX Mon Sub.

My first trackside success in months... an eastbound Q370-17 with an AC44CW leader and some ancient helpers. Note the B&O CPL. These are coming down from the Philly Sub. Pleased to see this one at Collingdale.

Helpers on Q370-17. An ex-B&O SD40-2 from 1977. Might even be some Chessie orange showing thru.

Nice Charlie_O. I'm going to miss those CPLs when they are all gone. More and more they are already gone from some of the places that I have been.

Logjam on the Philly Sub today afternoon. Sadly the latter 3 trains in this set were headed straight out of the sun, so I've tried some Photoshop tricks so you can see some of the detail.
 
Q405 manifest WB
Q702 trash EB
Q438 manifest EB
Q174 intermodal EB
 
...first, Q405 the shortest Q405 I've yet seen: 3 cars.

Q174, going away, toward Boone Tunnel. Trailing unit is CSX 7352, an ex-CR unit.

I caught a loaded csx coal on the NS mon line at West Brownsville, Pa. It was symboled NS N65, i caught it just before it left the mon line for the csx mon branch. Once on CSX rails it was symboled CSX T386.

I shot this video on the last Saturday of the New River Excursion last month. This video is of the E612-22 at Saint Albans, WV with the friendliest engineer on the C&O, if not on the entire CSX network, at the controls. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3-2pfp_oSg
 
The following video was shot on the same day before the E612-22 went on to the Coal River. This is the V302 bound for the yards at Russell, Kentucky and eventually on to Brice, North Carolina with loads for Duke Power. At first, this train had stopped to let the N126-20 that was in front to get on further down the track. CSXT 157 is showing the pent up ALCo that is in all GE's when it starts up.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPYOoe2R7tM
 
The next five or six videos are of the grain trains coming through the towns of Marmet and Saint Albans, WV. First up, is the G879-05 heading west with nearly an entire string of new grain hoppers returning for more loads out in the Midwest. This train had six locomotives with the CSXT 7767 leading the ruckous through town.  
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXFoMAYRrPQ
 
This next grain train was shot right after the G879-05 had went by. The G855-02 heads through town with two more General Electrics as power. CSXT 245 leads the charge through town heading east for the yards at Clifton Forge, Virginia.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cD7ipXYrtv4
 
The final grain train, and the final train that I caught on 11-6, heads east through Marmet. The G852 is seen with CSXT 7904 and another General Electric product taking the train on to the east.  
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sK7QdDyKDGE
 
The G879-22 heads west through Saint Albans, WV before the arrival of the New River Excursion on its last Saturday of operation in 2010. This train was led by two former CONRAIL units as it easily attains track speed through town. Forgive me for the woman talking, I should have picked a better spot.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUg2crfFgWk
 
Last weekend, I ventured down to Saint Albans again to get some video. The first grain train that showed up was the G894 bound for Rocky Mount, North Carolina. This train is being led through town by CSXT 7905 & 7596 as it crosses over from number two over to number one main.  
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-C2ZUGn4og
 
The last grain train, and final train of the day/night, was the G858-12 being led through town by CSXT 8642. This train had some rare cars on it with two CSX cars with the "Transportation" spelled out. One former Chessie/B&O hopper with its original lettering and number still in place. The last rare car was a Seaboard System hopper with the "SBD" still shown over the car number.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnNE7JteCv4
 
Not to mention that I did catch an SD50/SD50-2 leading a grain train through town. I did manage to the last standard cab C40-8 remaining in CONRAIL colors on CSX and maybe even Norfolk Southern leading the westbound manifest through town. CSXT 7489 leads the Q303-12 through town while on its way to Russell, Kentucky.

Enjoy the videos folks!!!

Found a very short H773-09 eastbound at Oriana on the Peninsula Sub. 1235Hrs on 12/9/10. #7912 is one of the 277 C40-8Ws that CSX has.

This was taken last year in August in West Van Lear Kentucky. There was a special bridge dedication ceremony going on, complete with congressmen making speeches, special singing, military gun salute and all kinds of ceremony. The train engineer stopped the train and let it idle until the ceremony was finished. Pic was taken August 2010.
