The CSX has been taking a lot of heat lately. I'm sure they make their mistakes, but our experience is that some very fine folks are employed there. They have been very good to us as railfans.

Post your CSX (and predecessor roads) pics here. Let's celebrate the CSX! They are a colorful RR with a history to match!

As a kick off, here's a few taken of fast moving freights on the S&NA sub between Birmingham and Cullman, Al.

I know what it's like to want a new camera. I wanted my Canon for several years before I bought it.

It's sure fun to play with, a whole new hobby actually. The more I read, the more interesting photography is to me. My next thing will be some decent lenses. The kit lens is definitely a starter affair.

My pics are resized at 72dpi and most are cropped before being sized at 1000x1000 pixels. They still resize to almost 1meg when converted from RAW. The RAW files would be great for wall poster sized prints, lol.

Please keep taking pics and posting them with your current gear. I'm enjoying what you're shooting and posting! :cool: It's all about having fun with your online train buddies, not a photography contest.

Great thread Eric, I often feel like a stubborn fan of an unrespected football team, but CSX is the only game in my area. My compliments to all contributors [so far].

Here's a few oldies from my archives. Glad I saved all my RailImages stuff before their old server went offline. Quality isn't too great on some of these, but I couldn't always get the Sun to cooperate with me...:rolleyes:

The first pic of the lead post in this thread shows a freight on a trestle. Here's a better shot of the trestle. Back in the L&N days, it was double tracked. :cool: It's amazing to watch trains with 3 and 4 locomotives in the consist cross it a speed. The locos seem to get "out of sync" with each other and look to be each moving vertically up and down about a foot or so. When one is going up and the next going down, it's a sight to behold.

René, I love the shot of the centerbeams in the curve.

Paul, Thanks for showing the personal side of the CSX. The CSX people we've run into have been fantastic to us laymen.
