CSX Intermodal on the Edge of Spring.

On my way through Palmer, Massachusetts, I noticed New England Central’s northward 608 blocked at the diamond crossing with CSX’s Boston Line.

That was a good indication that a CSX train might be close.

After a very short wait this eastward CSX intermodal train came into view. It was probably Q012;‑one of several daily trains that runs to Worcester for unloading.

The trees are still bare, but the sun was bright. In just a few more days the trees will begin to leaf, the grass will become green, and Spring will be in the air.

  1. I am not so sure that the leaves will dare to show in a few days.
    Here in Narrowsburg we have a fairly heavy snow squall, on the last day of April, that is making lawns and the deck white.
    Temp is about 35 at 0930.
    Brian, keep up your good work
