Three Local Train Videos – CSX and Amtrak

 Freight, News  Comments Off on Three Local Train Videos – CSX and Amtrak
Apr 232012

Just a few videos taken out and about in North Charleston with my iPhone.  This first one is of a freight train coming into North Charleston on the lines that parallel River’s Avenue back behind Trident Technical College. Actually. all of these videos were take there, the only the that changes is which direction the trains are going!

This first one was taken today, Monday, April 23, 2012 at about 7:30am.  The crossing sounds you hear are from the crossing at Mabeline Road. Of particular interest is the last car in the train – a modified CSX caboose type work car.

This next one was taken from basically the same spot, but a few yards further back. At about 10am on Friday, April 20, 2012, this short Amtrak passenger train is headed north, out-of-town.

And finally, also from Friday the 20th, a northbound CSX freight recorded from the same location. Yes, I have been spending a lot of time sitting in that parking lot or along side the road. Hopefully that will change soon.
