CSX Geometry train visits the Palmetto sub
Author: Fireman424

CSX W003-10 ran down the Palmetto sub today from Tampa south to the end of CSX ownership at mp75. The train reversed back to Tampa testing the sidings as they went back north. W003 crosses the Big Manatee river coming into Bradenton, Florida this morning.

That's a great catch down there ! Did they shove all the way back to Tampa, or at least to the Rockport wye ? The river area is a nice place to hang out waiting for trains, unfortunately you're lucky to see one these days. Was there any other traffic that day ?

EL833 they shoved at least up to Port Manatee I cut off a bit before that but heard them still shoving. Normally get the 0834 between 0700 and 0900 coming in and flipping back out between 10 and 1130. I have been told a local comes down and across in the afternoon if they have work but have not seen it in a couple years of coming down here in January. I am normally busy in the afternoons though.
