This is a hastily shot video of two CSX locomotives pulling a train through the Iron Dog district of North Charleston. CSX Coal Train through Iron Dog District of North CharlestonThis video shows the entire very long train of coal cars. About 8 minutes in length. Be forewarned, not much happens! Just a long string of coal cars.

Sorry for the fuzzy video, maybe I need to clean the camera lens. Or maybe it was the humidity. This was shot as I was sitting in my Triumph Spitfire with the top down on Rivers Avenue at about 5pm.
