CSX Re-Double-Tracking 1997 Part 3

In Part 3 of our 1997 trip along CSX’s Cumberland mainline, we come to Greenwich, Ohio, where CSX crossed Conrail’s ex-Big Four “Bee Line” from Cleveland to Terre Haute, Indiana. No connecting tracks existed at this time, but CSX would inherit the “Bee Line” in the Conrail break-up in 1999.

Within a year, connecting tracks between the two lines would be installed, and the CPL’s removed. Here we see a ¬†short westbound CSX auto train cross the Conrail diamonds in August, 1997:
