If you like big trains, heres one for you.
Author: biff

Todays CSX Q389 rolls through Churchville NY this afternoon. 1020 axles and 249 cars. I had a lot of trouble uploading the video, tried changing to format and it finally would upload but the quality looks poor and I guess it is the best I can get uploaded.

I second! Most people focus on the locomotives. I wonder if any of those two UP units are online? I don't know how CSX operates its engines up there. On the Baltimore Division, trains are allowed to have 24 powered axles. The AC units are considered 9 powered axles each. A six axle DC unit is six axles apiece. Earl...

Mostly empty cars, so not so heavy a train........

Thanks for the full video, quality is very good enuf. But I'm trying to figure out the statistics. 1020 axle count minus 24 for four locos equals 996 axles. As I do not see any non-four axle cars, train should have 249 cars. But I've watched the video twice and get 246. I'll look again since I am having eye issues. But it is still a few cars longer than seen here, and my guess is 13,000feet; probably longer. And you got the symbol too. Please do continue to post long trains you see. The ex-NYC water level route has always hosted big trains. Look at the speed it is going. Works most of the time, except in winter.
