BNSF to CSX run through
Author: phlone

Does anyone know if BNSF has or had a run through manifest train to CSX in Chicago from Galesburg?
If so, would it have been running in 2018?

Q380 was a Galesburg to Willard Ohio train at one time. By 2018 it had been abolished.

I can't say for sure, but I doubt there are any CSX-BNSF run through manifest trains now days.  I think the traffic off of BNSF to CSX is routed through BRC's Clearing Yard in Chicago.  This yard seems like it was one of the way's Hunter's PSR program uses to eliminate hump yards - ie, use someone else's.  I'm assuming then the BRC preblocks the CSX trains eastbound, thus allowing CSX to shut down its Willard hump yard.
