CSX 426 and CSX 43 on the point of a coal train at Garrett, IN.


CSXT 426 & CSXT 43 sit at MP 126 on the Garrett Subdivision.

 Back in September of 2015, I was on a road trip and passed through Garrett, Indiana. During my brief visit to the town, I was able to photograph a parked coal train sitting to the east of town, at the Country Road 19 crossing. There I found CSXT 426 and CSXT 43 sitting parked with a loaded coal train at milepost (MP) 126 of CSX's Garrett Subdivision. The train did not have a crew at the time.

The Garrett Subdivision runs from Deshler, Ohio, (on the east end) to the neighborhood of Willow Creek, in Portage, Indiana (on the west end).  It is part of CSX's Chicago Division and was formerly a Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (B&O) line. At Deshler, the Garrett Subdivision meets the Willard Subdivision. At Willow Creek it meets the Barr Subdivision, and there is a junction with CSX's Porter Branch line.

  1. Very nice image. I have a habit of calling coal trains "Robbie Coltrane". Bwahaha, maybe it's just me.

    1. That's a catchy and funny nickname for them.
