I'd never seen a CSX trailer on pavement before, so this truck was a cool discovery.

Sharp eyes may have noticed a second set of headlights in one of my previous pictures. It was, in fact, the westbound Amtrak Empire Service. I caught a meet by sheer luck.

Amtrak would continue westward on the Chicago Line, while the CSX intermodal diverged onto the West Shore Bypass.

This would be a productive evening for catching westbound CSX freights, with the second one showing up not long after the previous two trains departed.

This westbound CSX intermodal stayed on the Chicago Line as it passed through the Rochester area.

As the last TOFC cleared the interlocking, the signal went dark... a sure sign nothing else was coming. All in all, 4 trains in an hour was a good haul, so I called it a night.

Here we have an eastbound coal train in Columbia, SC. The train is passing the Amtrak Station and is about to cross Devine St. Don't let the 161 mile post fool you, it is for the NS track that is in the foreground. #907, an ES44AC, #319, a CW44AC, and #5495, an ES44DC lead the way. Taken on 11/14/11 at 0915Hrs.

Yeah, I've never seen a mile marker like that on CSX routes. It's definitely NS.

A westbound CSX intermodal freight crosses Attridge Road on a windy and cool fall afternoon.

The weather had been a sloppy mix of rain and soft hail earlier in the day, so there was plenty of standing water to reflect the passing stacks.

CSX isn't shy about using SD40-2s on their symbol freights, but the elderly EMDs are often the trailing unit.
