Chili Junction has been absolute goldmine for CSX action this year. My final trip there last month might be the best Saturday evening I've ever had with CSX since I started hanging out at the Attridge Road crossing in 2001.  
 
This evening started slowly, with just a lone MOW truck in the first hour.

The activity began to pick up after 7:00 PM, when a westbound piggyback train crossed Attridge Road.

I saw a meet about 45 minutes later- the westbound Amtrak Empire Service passed an eastbound CSX intermodal freight. As an added bonus, the intermodal went down the West Shore Bypass.

Resuming that epic evening at Chili Junction, another eastbound CSX intermodal passed through the Attridge Road crossing and headed down the West Shore Bypass.

A short time later, a third CSX eastbound freight (auto racks in this case) went down the West Shore Bypass.

The switch to the West Shore Bypass closed... and all further eastbound CSX trains remained on the Chicago Line for the remainder of my visit... including this eastbound intermodal.

The remaining trains I saw that evening were all westbound. This westbound CSX manifest freight came through around sunset.

Shortly after the previous train past, several railfans (including Pete Swanson), joined me trackside. We were all waiting for a special westbound train... but in the meantime, we enjoyed one more westbound manifest freight.

Sooo... what were we waiting for? It was worth the struggle of shooting in the growing darkness to capture this westbound unit tank train with vintage CP and Soo EMD power.

Good overhead shot. The church and contour of the mountains in the distance enhance the scene.

Curtis-
 
I thought the photo was near Letart but wasn't positive.  
Sure made a lot of footprints in that area.

#3018 has been in service on one of the locals (H773) working out of Newport News, VA this week. Here H773-21 is headed back into NPN at CA 23 on the Peninsula Sub. 11 empty tank cars from the Pepsi plant is the largest train I have seen it on so far. Hey DannyR, it is still clean!

Last month continued the trend of busy Saturday nights at Chili Junction. The first train I saw was a westbound manifest freight.
