CSX Z-Train Identification

Unread post by SergeantSchultz »

Hi all, first time poster, hope this is the right place to be asking.

Last weekend I was out railfanning in the Raleigh, NC area and caught Z664, which I noticed isn't listed on the wiki. It was an NS loaded grain train, northbound/eastbound by the fairgrounds where the CSX S-Line and NS H-Line run on the same track. I didn't catch whether he turned onto the NS-line or stayed on the H-Line, but I noticed there are a fair number of NS 400-500 series loaded grains to Selma, Goldsboro, or Raleigh listed on the wiki. Anyone happen to know any more about this Z664?

I don't know about this train, just that CSX uses Z symbols to identify other companies' trains when they run on CSX-dispatched lines.
