We live in weird times. Covid-19 has changed many things in our lives. The name of the game currently is “social distancing”, keeping your contact with people to an absolute minimum. That means, generally, staying the f**k home. However, it was a beautiful day, I just got new tires, and I needed to get some fresh air.
I was driving home from my friend Josh’s place and needed to get some gas. There’s one way I could’ve gone where I didn’t drive by the tracks, and there’s one way I could’ve gone where I did. You can guess which way I went.
I love catching trains “off the beaten path”. Sure, everyone (including me) has tons of photos from the common locations: St. Denis, Rockville Bridge, etc… but I really enjoy finding something somewhere that hasn’t been photographed to death. In this case, I caught CSX Q398, which runs from Cumberland to Locust Point. When arriving in Riverside Yard, it runs the “loop” that surrounds the neighborhood of Locust Point before yarding its train.
