CSX Atlanta Operations
« on: February 25, 2020, 08:12:20 AM »
With the recent announcement from CSX to convert a closed intermodal yard in Atlanta to a CSX TransFlo facility, what other operations does CSX currently have in the area? I'm asking because I can't locate and active intermodal or flat/hump yard facility in the Atlanta area. Is this correct?

CSXT's Intermodal Terminal is in Fairburn GA, just southwest of downtown Atlanta on I-85.  3 pair of intermodals call Fairburn home - Chicago/Fairburn Q027/028,  Memphis/Fairburn Q154/155, and Savannah/Fairburn Q197/198.  One additional train, Jacksonville/North Baltimore Q142/143, calls on Fairburn.

Does Q027 run anymore?  I haven't heard his ID on the CE&D since PSR began.  It use to run by me around 2 am. As far as my armchair CSX knowledge goes, only totes out of/for Chicago on the CE&D are Q025, 026, 028 & 029.  Fairly certain Q028 & 029 are Atlanta trains and are containers only, no UPS or reefer trailers in tow.  Q025 & 026 carry the UPS/Fedex traffic. Even #'s are northbounds & odd #'s are southbounds.
On a side note, when PSR began the dispatchers would hold traffic an incredible distance away from Q025 or Q026 as to not delay them whatsoever! Now I have seen them make rolling meets with freights.  Seems like the rr is more fluid going back to some old practices.  ;)
