A Day Along the Triple Track Main|
The third volume on our popular Sunrise/Sunset series takes you to the busy triple-track mainline at Cincinnati, Ohio, where 12 routes radiating in and out of town are squeezed through a funnel called Winton Place. Here CSX, Norfolk Southern, Indiana & Ohio, and Amtrak trains compete for signals and switches, three-way meets are a regular occurrence, and directional running puts trains on competitors' rails to ease the congestion!
Pentrex set up in the pre-dawn hours of June 28, 2000 to capture 15 hours worth of action from sunrise to sunset. Among the many interesting moves that came our way were a CSX special passenger train, steel and coal trains, the Juice Train, Triple Crown trains, and a working Loram Rail Grinder. We recorded 58 trains, many with a fascinating array of motive power. CSX presented an incredible variety of diesels, with numerous units on lease, and post-merger Conrail power was in use on both CSX and NS.
