UNION CITY, Ind. – The CSX Transportation business train is rolling west across Ohio and Indiana on Thursday, operating with a P001 train symbol. The newly-repainted train was spotted on the former Conrail (New York Central) “Bee Line” between Cleveland and Indianapolis at midday. A pair of modern ES44AC diesel locomotives is leading the two repainted F40PH locomotives and passenger consist, which carry a new scheme inspired by predecessor Baltimore & Ohio.

  1. I’m sorry (and I suppose old-fashioned), but the lead two locomotives don’t convey what I consider should be the dignity of a business train.

  2. I would hazard a guess that the engines used for the biz train don’t have the controls to work with PTC installed. (yet) I dare them to bring that train down the Indiana and Illinois Sub.

  3. The F-40s were recently rebuilt, including PTC installation, but have experienced operational problems necessitating the addition of the freight locomotives.
    The train originated at Jacksonville heading to Worcester, MA with the F-40s as power. The ES44ACs were added enroute when problems developed with the original consist.

  4. Is there any place online that shows a roster of CSX’s business car fleet and the cars heritage?

  5. CSX Transportation chose one of the best and most colourful railway paint schemes, that of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, for its business train. I am heartened to see in the 21st century a clerestoried heavyweight car on the main line in the consist ahead of the theatre car.
