CSX Locomotives Have A Surprise On The Center Track!
Rarely do you see 3 parallel tracks with a tank freight on the left, a auto rack on the right, and the surprise stack in the middle!
Looking more like a horse race at the starting gates, at 40 seconds into this clip you are surprised by CSX 439 breaking out of the pack!
CSX 7319 and CSX 4045 are sitting there as “outlawed trains”, which is railroad jargon meaning that they are not allowed to move. This is because the crew has reached the maximum number of hours they are allowed to work without rest. Therefore, it is against the “law” for them to move any further.
Shot just outside Hamburg, New York, you get a really colorful view of the stack freight coming and going in high definition.
Let us know if you are a railfan that likes to see freight trains, no matter what! We love to hear your commnents!
