CSX K597-03 and CSX G672-04: January 4, 2018

A spectacular trio of EMD's are on point of CSX K597-03, hauling 84 empties from AK Steel's facility in Middletown, OH towards the AK Steel facility adjacent to Rougemere Yard in Detroit, MI. Having just rounded the Toledo wye, CSXT GP38-3 #2060, CSXT RDSLUG #2313 and CSXT GP40-2 #6913 crawl under the old C&O bridge at Eckles Road in Livonia, MI.

CSX G672-04 had engine troubles and was stopped just mere miles south of Flint for 15 hours. After receiving a new set of power, the train heads south by Base Line Road in Northville, MI. The 88 loads of grain are bound for Monroe, NC.

When did they ditch running the slabs on the Q-trains and go back to a K-train
