Review of CSX Fs DVD Greg Scholl

 5 of 5 (1)
The final four F-units on the CSX railroad are depicted in this video tape covering a variety of locations. Former Clinchfield Railroad FP7 #118 and F7 #116 and B-Units 117 and 119 are seen in historic film segments during the 1960s in more modern service (1987-1988) on CSX. In 1987 we cover a track geometry inspection train led by 118 and 119 in Ohio and Kentucky as far east as Kenova, W.V. This train is first seen around Marion, Ohio then south of Columbus to Cincinnati on the former B&O line through Washington Court House and Midland toward Cincinnati. The next day we see the train between Cincinnati and Kenova, on the former C&O line. There is a beautiful scene passing the Maysville, KY depot about 8 in the morning.

The bulk of our program features the unique operations of these 4 F-Units in Roadrailer freight service. These operations were in the spring and fall of 1988 between Detroit and Atlanta. Normally a pair of them, either 116-117, or 118-119 would be seen in
