CSX Danials Road by DragonWolfACe CSX Danials Road by DragonWolfACe
Welcome to Danials road, the west end of CSX's Willard yard. This is the 3rd westbound in a half hour. Six more westbounds would leave in the last hour of light. A snow storm from a few days prior and a cold 10 degrees leaves snow caked on the tracks.

Thanks. I remember that day well. I spent the last three hours of daylight there but only stayed on the bridge in 10 minute encrements because it was soo cold.

I can imagine, well worth the result, an excellently detailed shot! I love yard views from overpasses. Was tempted to park on the way home from work and take a shot of Cicero Yard. There was a MRL GE partnered with a BNSF GE but I was giving someone a ride home, was already late, and it was damn cold!

LOL, I know the feeling. Unfortently, Danials road is the only overpass in Willard. Theres very few yards out east that actually have a road going over the yard...very frustrating...

We're lucky in that regard. There was Cicero (still is but concrete BS mostly), Proviso, BRC (Cicero Ave), Rockwell street (BRC). Just to name three I got shots off of that I can think of offhand.

Both yards at Blue Island on the southeast side.
IHB gets bonus points for having the engine terminal at the overpass!

Yeah, I only got there once! :(
What can I say... there was so much action just minutes from home! I'll have to post my southside excursion some day. Really cool stuff!

Ohhh yeah!
You have some good stuff up already.
Three WC SD45s.....NICE
Ive seen 3 WC SD45s on one train that made it east of Cleveland...had a CSX SD40-2 leader. Only bad thing was that it showed up in the afternoon.
