CSX in Apex

I thought I'd drop by downtown Apex to see if any trains were working and got lucky enough to see this CSX locomotive building up a train again. This is the 2nd time I've seen a train being built up in Apex around 1:30 - 2:00pm. Not sure if this is a daily schedule or if I'm lucky?

Passing the historic Apex Depot

I still haven't figured out the reason for the pedestrian railroad crossing on the North edge of downtown, but it makes a nice spot to photograph from.

About 10 steps North from the pedestrian crossing with the Apex water tower in the background.


  1. Do you sell copies of these photos?

  2. Its F741, southbound local from Raleigh to Hamlet. Stops by Apex, NC to swap cars with F729 (Durham&Southern Local).
