    No grade here just speed restriction for the drawbridge, this is CSX rail and NS has trackage rights from the town of Stevenson, AL to Wauhatchie, TN

    Surprising thing about Rivers - they occupy the lowest terrain where ever they flow - to cross a river in most cases a line must descend the surrounding terrain to bridge level and the ascend up to the surrounding 'heights' on the other side of the bridge.

    NS runs through our community many times each day and I get video a few times each month. But, how do you know the train number to label the video when you post it online? I know*some* of the scheduled container freights that are scheduled between Pittsburgh and Chicago, but they don't always run on schedule and I have no idea how other freights are scheduled, nor how they are numbered.

    I am certain each videographer has their own methods.

    The easiest is to video a railroad whose rules require trains to call signals over the road radio channel. Most of the time trains announce there Train ID, Engine Number, Direction, Signal identity and Signal indication. Have a radio scanner to hear the transmission and you have all the information you need. With signals being spaced every 2 to 3 miles you will likely be able hear more than one signal being called.
