Today I noticed an odd sight- double stacks on the water level route along the James River. This line is used mainly for coal with a few mixed trains interspersed. About four or five years ago we saw regular trash trains when the tunnel in Baltimore had some issues. Anyone know what the stacks are doing on this line?


Q139 and Q130 are re-routing while the tunnels get daylighted and massive track work gets completed on their normal route for the National Gateway Project. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
