CSX 3144, CSX 5446, and CSX 7674 Rolling North at Gallatin - Video

While out doing some errands with my daughter, we saw this train, which she "demanded" we try to get ahead of so that we could take a photo of. Since I only had my phone with me I decided to capture some video. I shortened the duration of the train passing, and got a couple of different angles of the train. The video is fifty-three seconds in duration.

The train is rolling north through Gallatin, on the CSX's Main Line Subdivision, heading toward Louisville, KY. On the point are CSXT 3144, CSXT 5446, and CSXT 7674.

Video taken: November 15, 2017. Gallatin, Tennessee.
