CSX Q025 "The Prince of Darkness"
Author: RFandPFan

CSX Q025 is a high-priority intermodal train from Chicago to Jacksonville, FL.  Crews and Dispatchers have nicknamed it "The Prince of Darkness" because other trains must get out of the way when this train approaches.  I'm not sure if he was exaggerating, but recently a dispatcher was talking with another train crew over the radio and told them that they were ordered to keep the route clear one hour ahead of this train.

Here is a video of today's Q025 on the Nahunta Subdivision at Hilliard, Florida.

It's probably why they want to give him plenty of room considering his speed too
