CSX taking interchange to NS in Wilmington, DE
Author: inCHI

In years upon years of seeing CSX trains in Delaware, I've never seen a train use the CSX Market Street Branch. Yesterday I heard the crew ask the dispatcher to work it, and finally got that checked off (even though my camera gear was lacking and didn't work as intended.) It is a neat little area to me because of the old PRR traces and the sense that it is barely active anymore. The crew brought four cars down, pulled forward past the switch, and I liked how the underpass beneath the NEC was lit up.

As the engine shows the 4 cars into another track against a covered hopper that was already there, a Septa local to Newark zips by. The headlight lights up the old stonework of the PRR viaduct, and then once the cars are dropped the cut of cars is lit up. Went I rode by on Amtrak today, a different group of about 5 cars was there, so NS much have come through.

Finally, the crew returns with the engine to Elsmere Yard, using the wye at Elsmere junction. It's odd to see new signals on the wye itself where the headlights show all the overgrowth. In the last shot, the local is going into about to go into the siding towards the yard.
