A pair of General Electric AC44CWs smoke it up as they lead an east bound CSX coal train into the yard at Keyser, WV on February 16, 2021. This line is CSX’s ex-B&O Mountain Subdivision, which runs between Cumberland MD and Grafton WV. CSX’s Mountain Sub is true mountain railroading, with three steep grades that trains must traverse: Cranberry, 17 Mile and Newburg, all of which are over two percent. Most trains require DPUs to assist up the steep grades and to provide dynamic braking while descending. A trip to the Mountain Sub, especially in winter, is truly an enjoyable experience.
