Remarks & Notes 
Right place, right time. A job that I have been wanting to Photograph for years finally happened on October 31st, 2018. CSX Job A736 heads back to the Coosa Pines Paper Mill (AKA Kimberly Clark) which is just a couple of miles ahead just north of downtown Childersburg, AL. They are seen here about to cross HWY 235 at Indian Hill, AL. With NS GP59 #4627 leading CSXT GP38-2 #2523. This line cuts off from NS's Anniston District in downtown Childersburg & runs north to Grasmere where it joins into CSX's Lineville Sub. From my understanding, both NS & CSX have joint ownership of this branch line, which is the reason they use both NS & CSX Locomotives together.
