Remarks & Notes 
Pulling hard just a quarter of a mile from the crest of the Raccoon Mountain grade the 7200 series GE is glistening in the sun as the pair of GE motor guide the massive Q580 through the broad s-curve in Whiteside, TN. What was a general freight, Q580 is now a empty rack train that follow the trek of the now abolished Q210. When Covid-19 made it's present known in the U.S. in the last 1st quarter of 2020, the automotive industry alone with the rest of the economy in a took a unprecedented decline to a point of a shutdown for a while which mean both Q210 and, counterpart Q211 was temporary abolished. Once the economy was making a sluggish rebound in phases CSX had to make some major adjustment on train numbers, and schedule due to the recession which mean a few trains such as Q210 and, Q211 will remain abolished for a uncertain amount of time. A PSR move was made with the combine of certain freight traffic and, rearrangement of things. Vehicle loads on this side of the CSX network that are bound of Greenville would go on Q581 in large blocks, and Louisville empties are now made up into Q580.
