I remember the old Chessie System locomotives that were yellow and black back in the eighties.They really pumped out the black smoke unlike the diesel electric locos of today.When one of them was powering up they would really rattle the windows and shake the ground.CSX was formed by the merger of the Chessie System and Seaboard System in the late eighties hence the C for Chessie and the S for Seaboard I believe the x has no meaning.
maybe it's where x is the universal sign for railroad crossing??? Idk...makes since in my head! Hah probably something completely different!
