CSX rear-ender Carlisle, OH
Author: timecruncher

On the way to work this morning (4:55AM EST) I heard a report of a derailment with one fatality, described as a rear-ender near Carlisle, Ohio. Sounds like the CSX Toledo Sub (ex-B&O) and a coal drag, since the only substance mentioned was coal "spilled."

I know there are lots of Cinncy folks on this board, so I figure we'll see more details soon.

From the television news footage, it looks like the CSX derailment took place at the north end of the siding in Carlisle proper. Channel Five news is reporting this is a head-on collision between a northbound loaded coal train and southbound train. I will post more information as it becomes available.

Tragic news: initial reports have an extra board engineer killed. CSX engine #700 severely damaged. The lead train that was struck was a steel K-train and struck by a Marysville, Ohio autorack train.

Detours?
Author: IORY_GP40

Just heard a CSX Q-series train (not one of the normally assigned Q trains) getting permission for the Sugar Block, which leads to the Midland Sub. Is CSX using the Midland to detour around the wreck?

It would appear that CSX is diverting Toledo Sub. traffic to a Midland Sub. & Columbus Sub. route. All is quite up here on the north end of the Toledo Sub. with no train movements since late last night.

Conrail Cincinnati Line detour
Author: k8dti

Detours are via the ex-Conrail from Dayton to Cincinnati. Some traffic may go via the Midland, but traffic is restricted due to local traffic and capacity issues.

I knew they couldn't send a lot via the Midland, but I guess as many as they can put on the Midland they will.

Man, that just hits a tad bit to close to home. My thoughts and prayers are with the relatives and loved ones of all in the accident.

That is the second rear-ender on the Toledo and Cincinnati Terminal.
Hope they find out what exactly happened.

Was that a Indianapolis (former Conrail) crew on that train, or on from the east or Toledo based former Conrail crew?

Any word on who the crew members are? I know several people that work on that sub, and I hope that the "ex-Conrail" crew wasn't some guys I used to run with a few years ago. Those guys were some of the finest railroaders I've had the honor of working with. At any rate, please pray for these men and their families in this harrowing time. This should serve as a reminder to us all that railroading is dangerous business, and that life itself is precious.~~DRLOCO. RJKrengel.

The crew on the q228 was a Marysville Ohio based crew. The crew had an engineer pilot on board who was from Cincinnati. The 35 year old pilot engineer was the crew member who was killed.

The second unit was CSX 256, a AC4400CW.Such a tragic accident.
Thoughts and prayers to the train crew's families.

Q203 with CSXT 7082 leading came down the Columbus Sub from Walbridge. Currently Q203 is going down the former C&O Northern Sub south out of Columbus. The power will runaround the train between NJ Cabin and DG Cabin and head down the "CD" back to Cincinnati.

Also, Q219 with CSXT 8418 leading just passed my location at MP 12 on the Columbus Sub. No indication yet if this train will make the same move as the Q203 or if it will head down the Midland.

Broken Necks
Author: aaca-yd

I was reading your threads and got the crap scared out of me for I have a friend that works outs of Marysville Ohio. So I called him to see if he was OK. Thank god he was,he told me he was the regular conductor on the auto train but is marked off sick. It was the Q24316 that was involved in the wreck. He didn't have the details of the accident, but said that the pilot was killed and the engineer and conductor are in the hospital with broken necks. Bless them all....

possibly cause?
Author: thatlldo

Any information on possible cause? Foggy, rainy, snowing, limited visibility, defective signals, defective train brakes, etc.

vISITED the wreck site today. RJ Corman crews didn't get started until around 1:00pm today. IT definitely was a bad scene. It looked like 1 loaded auto rack car fell over & several loaded coal hoppers were literally split up & twisted into a heap. The report on the crew was horrifying & I hope the 2 survivors have a speedy recovery.

From the looks of things, the line probably won't be open until sometime tomorrow, although there is a siding track that they could open sooner to allow some of the bottleneck to pass through. Couldn't stick around, but wish I could have watched the Corman crews at work as they had quite a mess to clean up -- not the least being the lead locomotive that fell approx. 30 feet down into the 'ditch'.
