The theme for this outing seemed to west, west, west... these CSX westbounds were nicely lit by the late day sun.

Resuming the series, the steady parade of westbound trains came to an end. It was now time for a couple of eastbounds on CSX, including this auto rack train.

The 2nd eastbound CSX freight to pass through Chili Junction that evening was an intermodal that went down the West Shore Bypass.

Thanx, Charlie. I hadn't noticed the ex-CR units in the mix, but it feels utterly appropriate for them to lead on home rails.

I had a pleasant surprise on my 2nd CSX-related outing of June. I saw the first train of the day at the Route 259 crossing, which is on the West Shore Bypass about a mile or two east of Chili Junction.

Setting up at the Attridge Road crossing, it didn't take long for the westbound Amtrak Empire Service to arrive.

Now, here the real show stopper! I have seen many things on CSX... but I had never seen 2 eastbound intermodal freights running side by side at Chili Junction. One of them went down the West Shore Bypass, while the other continued its eastward trek on the Chicago Line.

CSX was rather busy that evening. It was not long before another eastbound intermodal train went down the West Shore Bypass.

My first railroad outing for this summer was at Chili Junction during the 4th weekend of June. This westbound CSX intermodal was my frist sighting of the evening.
