CSXT Southbound Vehicle Train Q215 rumbles through Pelham, Al.
Actually this train is a vehicle train ( Q215 ). The reason you're fooled is that CSXT sometimes fills out this vehicle train with doublestacks on the headend. FEC is another railroad that will fool you, unless you know what train symbol it is. Many of FEC'S intermodal trains will run with freight added to the headend
No problem C.S. Jackson. I just wanted you to know the facts. Those doublestacks are loaded with auto parts being that it's a vehicle train. Usually the Q215 will have about 10 5 car articulated doublestack well cars added to the headend with the rest vehicle racks when they add the doublestacks on, but CSXT doesn't always do this. I'd say most of the time it's solid vehicle racks.
