Disc-2 CSX Toledo Sub Vol-2...This video covers the CSX Toledo Sub. from Tipp City, Ohio to Wapakoneta, Ohio and was shot from September 2008 to March of 2010. This busy single track line sees abundant action during daylight hours and includes automotive trains carrying both parts and vehicles, commodity trains such as ore, coal, and grain, as well as regular manifest trains.
This particular area of the Toledo Sub. has a concentrated number of passing sidings to make rail-fanning this line interesting. In addition, most of these sidings are still controlled by CPL’s or Color Position Light Signals. This fact alone brings many rail-fans to visit and photograph the Toledo Sub. These ancient CPL’s are slowly being replaced by modern traffic light type signals. Many of these scenes were shot in the frigid, snow blowing winter of 2009-2010.
Other areas visited in this video will be Troy, Piqua, Kirkwood, Sidney Jct, Sidney, Swanders, Anna, and Botkins. 82 Minutes
