Remarks & Notes 
Buffalo and Pittsburgh 3333 heads empties down CSX's Mon Sub, namesake subdivision of the Monongahela River in which it follows to Newell. A Norfolk Southern crew will then take the train across the river at Brownsville to the connection for NS's Mon Line, where it will follow the river a little more until Clarksville where it'll start heading compass West, railroad south. After snaking through the confines of Greene County and getting to Waynesburg, it will then take NS's Manor Branch to Bailey mine, and head back the reverse way it came down. To the left of the train is Lock and Dam #3, which has been slated to be removed as part of a system wide project to overhaul, upgrade, and remove any outdated lock and dam navigation ports. It was to be removed in 2009, but funding has made it necessary to remove it between now and 2014. But unfortunately, funding is necessary to keep this 108 year old structure alive until then.
