My train left Chicago in the late evening so there wasn't much to photograph except a railfan at Waterloo and the platform at Toledo. I was traveling with Pigs in a first class sleeper, which was his first time. Right before leaving Chicago I went to some considerable trouble to locate a 6-pack for the trip home and that came in handy while we were waiting for the Diner to open up.
I woke up a bit after the station stop in Pittsburgh and finally managed to get back to the rear window at the small town of West Newton. Last time I rode this line the CSX Keystone Sub still had B&O CPL's all the way from McKeysport to Rockdale. Unfortunately I discovered that the CPL's (as well as the pole line) between Connelsville and Rockdale have all been ripped out and replaced by darth vaders with solar panels. Fucking CSX didn't even put in CTC...they just ripped down the CPL's for no good reason. I am also very angry with myself because I was too lazy to go back to the rear of the train in a timely manner and I missed about half of the remaining CPL's on the Keystone.
After breakfast and the station stop in (Q)Cumberland, MD I went back again and took photos of all of the CPL's on the Cumberland Sub between Mexico and Hancock and then the CPL's around Brunswick Yard and finally those om the Metropolitan Sub west of Rockville, MD.
Anyway I will cut to the chase and just get to the photos.
The huge lot of them can be found here:
Here are the Fritz Henry CPL's. Typical for a pole-line CPL installation in automatic block territory in the middle of "no-bars" country.
Well, hope you all enjoyed the trip!!! Took me long enough to get processed :-D
