It was a very snowy morning on March 1, 2015 in Sheridan NY. when I went out to try to catch some trains. This CSX train was trying to set off on its route and needed to get the cars that were on the siding but there was plenty of snow in the way.

So the 2 engines had to plow some snow first and got stuck when I turned the camera and they had to back up and try again. Then after it latched on to the cars it spun its wheels a bit before getting enough momentum to get the train moving.

      They had to use the engines to plow the snow away, he had to back up a few times. When I panned away the engines must have gotten stuck because the backed up again as I panned over. And you can see the snow was plowed all the way to the train. They probably moved it some then got stuck so they had to uncouple and plow the snow some more, otherwise why would the video show the snow plowed to the train if they weren't already couple to it?

      Not wanting to be critical of the video, but I have to state the person taking this video does not know what he's doing when it comes to taking pictures of capturing an event. Not being a videographer myself, I know from watching this video, too much time was spent panning from left side of screen to the right. In addition, the person shooting this video, certainly spent far too much time filming in close ups of the bogies of the rail cars. Accents to this should have been showing this train moving these rail cars in the harsh environment and how far they have moved, then panning to the far right, where the end of the train should and would have been. But to follow some of the rail cars, then panning right or left and then again capturing another rail car was way to excessive and unneeded. The introduction of the two engines was a good point, and showing them hooking up to the two mile long cars, again a good shot. But when the train started moving, too much emphasis was placed on wheels, tracks, and panning around the scenery.

      Terrible camera work;; jerky and zooming in to , eg. the wheels, rather than showing what is happening to the train.

      Moving around showed more of what was going on. And this is old footage with an old camera so the quality isn't as good as my newer videos. Plus it was cold out there for 20 minutes, did you figure that in to your critique?

      This is what happens when you bring CSX crews up from FL and try to run a train in SNOW! Typical for CSX. Put some sand in front of the loco wheels for traction.

      Between the two units, there must be 7500 hp motive power.
      Probably just brake pipe hose, although the three auxiliary hoses may be connected as well. No HEP, so no 27-point jumper cables.

      Hello WWOT, the train was not stuck. What the engineer did was using the snow on the rear loco and was putting extra sand from his sanders, before he coupled onto the train in the siding. He never got stuck or slipped a wheel when pulling put the siding.
