CSX Q029 heads south at Monarch

01.20.15 CSX Q029 SB at Monarch, Madisonville, Ky

January 20, 2015 – CSX Q029 heads south under the Paducah and Louisville Railroad at CSX’s Monarch in Madisonville, Ky under a yellow light due to another grain train just ahead of him. The grain train was to take the siding at Nortonville, Ky to allow the hot intermodal to pass. One day I hope to catch a P&L train going over as a CSX comes north under it. I keep going back, but it hasn’t happened yet. Ah the joys of railfanning!
