CSX J726-20 on MH&E at Drakesbrough, Ky

December 20, 2017 – A light rain falls as CSXT 4319 (GP38-2) & 2046 (GP38-3) on CSX J726-20 heads north to run around its train at the Harsco, Black Beauty Abrasives yard in Drakesboro, Ky on CSX’s MH&E Branch. This is the only train that currently runs on the MH&E and up until a few weeks ago it only ran during darkness. Now it runs on Monday and Wednesday, leaving out of Madisonville’s Atkinson Yard in the morning, giving an opportunity to photograph rail action on the branch.
