Remarks: In the early years of CSX one could find variety and lots of color leading their trains across the system. Five clips are shown here that were taken in May 1987
from near Elizabethtown to Smiths Grove Ky. between Louisville and Nashville.
Scene one a Chessie painted GP40 leads train R133 south. Scene two SCL painted
SD45 leads a northbound near Bonnieville. Scene three a Family Lines painted GP16 leads a local through Smiths Grove. Scene four Family Lines B23-7 3143
leads a southbound with a Chessie caboose near Elizabethtown.Final scene Chessie GP39 4299 with strobes leads a southbound at Rowletts Ky.
Hi Joe.The vintage clips are fantastic. Looks like the time frame is when SCL was already Seaboard Family lines and CSX was just coming into the picture. Love the old SCL days for sure.Thank you Joe.SCL Pete.SCL ID#175866.

Great video. I miss the Chessie days. That is some great horn work on the last one in the video too.

This is like Amtrak's rainbow era, except with Chessie, Seaboard and CSX power!
