WOW! A CSX train in Shelbytucky on Christmas Eve. Oh, what deprived railfans we are here on the far end.

OMG  Revive the Shelbytucky Railfest Idea.  ;D ;D ;D

I feel confident that sooner or later (within next couple of years) you'll see more traffic and a revival of the line east of you.  I have first hand knowledge (if you know what I mean) or some consistent traffic exploring the idea or moving your way, and have heard second hand of other traffic sniffing a similar routing.  The attitude of the new carrier to your east seems to be an aggressive one wanting to grow the traffic and their relationship with the carrier in town and west of town seems on surface to be a more amicable one than the predecessor had.

Surprised CSX hasn't given up that run. There can't be much for Knauf with the hosing being down. Not sure who else gets service but can't be much.

Is the track speed 10mph the length of the entire Shelbyville secondary?  I lived in Fairland in the summer of 1992 just a block from the tracks and remember trains going through town at a good rate, at least 25 mph or faster.  Back then, I remember 5 day a week service and some occasional special trains.

It's 25mph until like the outside of town. Then, it's 10mph.

CSXT local powered by an ex NS geep tied down on the main in yard at Shelbyville today.  Looks like old CIND days with a blacked out NS unit sitting in the yard.
