Remarks & Notes 
An eastbound Indiana & Ohio auto rack train loaded with new Hondas from the plant at Greensburg, Indiana rolls into the western limits of Cincinnati. In the distance, a CSX rack train is also eastbound, but trailing at the moment (it would overtake the I&O train shortly). This was once a New York Central main line from Cincy to Indianapolis, and the CSX line was B&O's main to St. Louis. Without question, the photographer would have much preferred to see and photograph a J-1 Hudson on the James Whitcomb Riley pacing a B&O train drawn by a P-7 President-class Pacific. That last happened in the mid-'50s.
