    Happened to be in Louisville for a Monster Jam event,had time to kill so I stopped by Osborn Yard,as usual,to do a bit of railfanning(everything helps after this past week I've had.)

    First up is Z544,a transfer run by NS to Osborn. It was heading out,with a load of autoracks.

    My shots of the NS train were better,hence the two.

    Next,on the adjacent track, CSX Q502 comes barreling northwards with a good bit of speed.

    One of the last shots I managed to get before the CSX train blocked the view of the NS train.

    CSX won by the way,if you use the signal tower in the distance as the "finish line".

    Maybe I'll get lucky and I'll be able to catch a rematch!

    It figures...I placed my bet on the train that should have been on the third track. :) Jamie

    Sounds like NS T79 was the "tortoise" while the CSX was the "hare". :D

    Looks like a neat spot to set up for photos.

    Osborne has a few different spots. Not that great but you can pull it off.

    CSX cheated! They are on 20mph track while NS is on 10. Lets see a rematch:tb-biggrin:

    Is track 1 only good for 20mph too? It seems that some southbounds really start rolling after they clear Central Av.:tb-ooh:

    The #1 and #2 mains are 20mph while Highland Park and the Hounshell track are 10mph. In the photo it looks like CSX is on the #2 main and NS is on Highland Park 1.
