Album Info:Shots taken at St. Denis, MD, during 2007. Why is this such a popular place for railfans? Because both the CSX Old Main and Capital subdivisions run through this small commuter (MARC) station. Tracks for the respective subdivisions split about 1/2 mile south of the station--the single-track Old Main heads west toward Point of Rocks, MD; the double-track Capital subdivision turns and runs atop the famous Thomas Viaduct, and then heads south to Washington, D.C.

Up close and personal
Title:  Up close and personal
Description:  One reason St. Denis is such a popular place for railfans is that the trains get close--real close. The date of the picture, January 6th, is correct. Despite being less than two weeks after Christmas, the temperature was 70 degrees.

Mystery axle
Title:  Mystery axle
Description:  Westbound CSX Q261 proceeds through St.Denis on Track #1. The equipment defect detector at milepost 9 reported no defects for 133 axles. 133?! Let's see, four axles per rack divided into 132 yields 33 cars. None of the autoracks I saw had an extra axle, so I'm not sure where the mystery axle came from.
