CitiRail ES44AC on CSX Mountain Subdivision
Author: DTWilson

CSX has leased 20 ES44AC locomotives from CitiRail recently. Some of the locomotives have been showing up on trains on the Mountain Subdivision.

#1502, 1510, and 1523 was photographed on train Q316-19 at Keyser, WV while stopped to make their pick-up there - 21 March 2017

CitiRail #1502 came west out of Cumberland to fill in for a failed unit on W263-21 at Keyser, WV. Pictured here the #1502 stopped at West Keyser so the crew to assemble the power. The night before W263-21 stalled at Bloomington, MD when their trailing unit failed - 22 March 2017

Stalled Again, Same Spot ....... Second of attempt to get train W263-21 west finds them stalled again at the foot of 17-Mile Grade at Bloomington, MD after the #6 failed to load properly. The power from the following W263-20 would tie their train down at Keyser, cutting away their power and shove the W263-19 over the mountain - 22 March 2017

Nice to see some pictures on this line. Recently went to Cumberland and the two trains we saw came from Grafton.

What type of train are these W263s you are seeing? How often are they operating?

Typically they are a solid train of Frac. Sand between Cumberland, MD and Grafton, WV... but they also use that symbol for extra freight that Q317 or Q315 cant handle. Runs at least 3 times a week or more.
