The very last train I saw that evening was this eastbound auto rack train.

As the eastbound auto rack retreated into the distance, I decided to call it a day. The rain made things interesting... but I greatly prefer dry chase days.

CSX 5392 about to knock down a CPL heading towards Lordstown OH. The changing of the guard is coming soon. New signals are already standing only a 100' foot or so from these old B&O CPLs..... Just glad this bike trail runs along the main to allow for a good veiw.

Nice catch on the CSX ballast train Matt, and on the OCS, ChessieMike.

CSX 9021 leads an intermodal through Tilford yard to points northwest. The Atlanta skyline provides a backdrop.

One of my favorite shots of the day, an outbound DODX/container train winds through Tilford yard. NS' welded rail plant, the train, and the yard tracks sidewinding together makes for interesting scenery.

GP38-2 #2514 and a rare (to me, anyway) 4 axle slug #1024 working the hump as well.

Thanks! Weather played a role during my final day trackside in August. Hurricane Irene passed through the Northeast. In fact, heavy rain was just 45 minutes from Rochester. CSX prepared for the storm by sending a number of trains westbound during the weekend before the storm hit.  
 
Amtrak was also running westbounds on the Chicago Line to get the passengers and equipment out of harm's way.

There was already some standing water next to the ROW between Attridge Road and the signals at MP 382... so passing trains were reflecting nicely in it.

The tail end of the westbound auto rack train has cleared Attridge Road. I saw zero eastbound trains that night.
