C&O Railroad signal changes on the Northern Sub

by Fuchs on 12/06/12

This year didn't provide too many chances to photograph trains during the fall of the stately C&O signals on the Northern sub, as the railroad was largely under a daytime work curfew.  A recent trip down south to enjoy fall foliage resulted in a couple photos.

T909-19 heads west on an early Sunday morning at Vauces, OH with 121 loads of coal for a northern Indiana steel mill, splitting old and new signal masts in the fog.

At Powell Street (west end of RJ Cabin) on the Russell sub, Q313-21 leaves Russell, KY under what is perhaps the last of the old 3-track C&O signal bridges.  When signal work proceeded west from Russell onto the Northern sub last year, work bypassed this interlocking at the west end of the yard.
