11 Railroads on the way to Chattanooga
Author: Ohiorailfan

On Friday I made multiple stops between Columbus, Ohio and Chattanooga. Most places I knew what to expect and then were some surprises. Enjoy!

The 1st railroad being CIND which was by pure luck. We stopped in Blue Ash, Ohio at a bank and while waiting for them to open we heard a horn and investigated. Sure enough one of CIND's RP20BD's was heading north

2nd stop was Jeffersonville, Indiana. Even though the light was terrible I couldn't resist from taking a shot of the LIRC power

3rd stop was RJ Corman in Louisville, KY. At the sand plant 2 RJ units wait for the evening departure

4th stop was the PAL yard in Louisville. 20 minutes here gave us 2 moves with interesting power. 1st up was a PAL GP38-2 and the UK painted engine. After that a 5 pack of 4 axles came out with one of the Veterans units leading

Pic 1 is Indiana & Ohio Blue Ash sub. CIND and IORY are separate companies on paper but are operated as a contiguous system and share common G&W management. Operating as a single system, they of course pool power. There are only 3 CIND marked engines - 2 Gensets (2001 and 2002) both in G&W paint, and SW 1500 CIND 2342 in solid NS black.

Interesting. Didn't realize there is not only Nashville and Eastern, but also Nashville and Western.
