For what it is worth:
 
New CSX units 3006, 3007, 3008, 3009, 3010, 3011 (six beauties) came into Cleveland yesterday morning (5/10/12) as part of a freight train. They were put on a siding to sit for a few hours a mile east of the Collinwood (Cleveland Ohio) yard.
 
The new CSX logo looks stupid. (Looks like bad punctuation (brackets and periods surrounding the CSX) instead of an outline of a railcar.
 
Still wishing I had a camera. . .  
 
((Last Friday night-5/4 had a real treat when about 10 pm a freight with three old Big Gs as part of the power came in (Guilford CME 371, 373, 510.)

I've had a couple evenings at Chili Junction this month. The first outing netted 6 trains on CSX's Chicago Line. Leading up the parade was the westbound Amtrak Empire Service, which apparently stopped for the crew to examine something on or near the tracks.

Next up was this westbound hopper train... which might have been empties returning from a coal delivery.

The lone eastbound train I saw on that outing was this eastbound CSX intermodal freight, which crossed Attridge Road not long before sunset.

The eastbound manifest freight was met by the final train I was that evening- a westbound CSX intermodal freight.

This past weekend was another bonanza at Chili Junction. The first train, a westbound CSX intermodal, arrived just 30 seconds after I parked near the Attridge Road crossing.

The intermodal had barely cleared the area, when this eastbound manifest freight came through Chili Junction. CSX included a pair of SD40-2s as power for this train.

There was a fair amount of leased older EMD power on this occasion. A pair of HLCX SD40-2s led a westbound CSX auto rack train across Attridge Road.

Another eastbound CSX freight comes through Chili Junction. This was the 5th train to cross Attridge Road between 5:15 PM and 6:00 PM on that afternoon.

Amtrak's Empire Service was running a little late, but it also passed through Chili Junction before 6 PM.

The next train was my first sighting this year of a westbound CSX freight coming off the West Shore Bypass at Chili Junction.

I also caught a second westbound freight coming off the West Shore Bypass, about 30 minutes after the previous CSX freight passed.

The final train I saw before the light faded at MP 382 was another westbound CSX auto rack train.

Matt-
 
Some productive outings at Chili Jct this week.
 
Nice catches with the HLCX leasers and especially the red ones because they are fewer in number.

Thanks, Danny. I was shocked to see the leased SD40-2 leading that auto rack train. CSX doesn't usually do that in my neck of the woods unless the operation is local.

Howdy Again this fine May Day, the 23rd, 2012.
 
Monday evening (5/21/12) brand spaking new CSX Locomotives came into Cleveland from Erie PA.   3021, 3023, 3024 3025, and 3026 were on this inbound mixed freight. They were parked on a siding outside of and near the east end of the Collinwood Yard where they sat overnight (crew relief.)
 
Tuesday afternoon, 5/22, about 2 p.m. the train got a fresh crew and shortly thereafter off went the whole train west through the Collinwood Yard on twards their final destination. . . . . .  
 
3014 was actually on its own with another old unit buddied up pulling a west freight Sunday morning 5/20/12. Came through the Collinwood yard, got fuel at the pad and eastward ho it went. . . . . . . . . . . .
