Couple of Over / Under on CSX Mountain Subdivision
Author: DTWilson

At Beryl, WV the former B&O RR mainline from Cumberland, MD to Grafton, WV crosses over the former Western Maryland Railway's Thomas Subdivision. I've been luck and captured 3 over / under passings.

06 Feb 2016 - Q316-05 lead by a new -3 rebuilt is eastbound while below Coal Drag T052-04 shoves it's train west towards the Mt. Storm Power Station.

Nice shots, over/unders surely don't happen often there. How often is Mettiki loading trains these days? How often is Mt. Storm receiving trains?

Mt. Storm up to 20 trains a month... Metikki has been 2 a week, they just started back shipping Coal around Christmas.....
