Today's Train of Thought- Copper Creek Showdown; Nov 9th 2009

Today's confusing Train of thought features coal, a creek named Copper, high flying trestles and a little bit of role reversal in Appalachia. contributor Christoper Anderson caught this rather intricate and confusing shuffling of steel, horsepower and black diamonds on September 20, 2008 at Clinchport, VA as a pair of CSX GEVOs head back downgrade on Norfolk Southern's Appalachia District having shoved a train over the grade to Watkins. Meanwhile, above the two locomotives in CSX's Kingsport Subdivision, which was hosting a trainload of NS empties heading back to the mines. Norfolk Southern has trackage rights on CSX between Frisco, TN and St Paul, VA.
