GT Cab Ride Springfield to Cincinnati Extended Version
Climb aboard Grand Trunk train #216 (an all trailer-van train) powered by an ex-Rock Island GP38-2 for a cab ride from Springfield, Ohio (Maitland) to Cincinnati (CSX Queensgate Yard).
Most of the return trip is shown as far as Middletown. The Grand Trunk gained trackage rights over former Erie- Lackawanna rails from Maitland to Cold Springs and then Conrail tracks all the way to Cincinnati.
You'll pass through locations such as Fairborn, Dayton, West Carrollton, Miamisburg, Carlisle, Middletown, Maud Hill, Sharon Yard, Elmwood Place, and Queensgate Yard.
This program is of historical significance since this GT trailer train was annulled in the late 90’s. Also the Grand Trunk no longer operates from Detroit to Cincinnati. Parent company Canadian National North America spun off the former Flat Rock subdivision of the ex-DT&I to the Indiana & Ohio Railroad which is now owned by the Genesee & Wyoming Railroad Company.
You’ll witness several meets with other trains on the way to and from Cincinnati. Conrail, NS and a Grand Trunk automotive train with nine all GT powered locos provide additional interest in this video.
Onscreen graphics keeps the viewer informed of locations. Hear talk between the engineer, conductor and dispatcher.
