December on Norfolk Southern's AGS South

Post by HWB » Fri Dec 07, 2012 12:42 pm

A couple of video's from the last couple of days. Mile Post 195 see's the usual suspect such as 393 stopping for signal work then starting up, NS 130, NS 172, NS 393 ..again and NS 225. As a type this I'm listening for NS 937. Looking forward to seeing what it is
On Thursday I got the Crescent's meeting at Bryant. 19 went in so 20 could pass.
Great horn work by all the crews so sit back and enjoy!

Norfolk Southern AGS South action in and around MP 195 at Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Of special note is NS 130 with two CSX motors blazing the trail up the the hill to MP 195 and my train spotting dog "Frisco" being sick track side as Train 19 comes by. Thanks for the extra horn so he could get in the clear

Caught the ABS turn leaving Tuscaloosa and chased it to Kennedy Mills Road. It had three SD40-2's leading the way.
NS was "railitively" busy for a Saturday with NS 393 running restricted at 195. Both Crescents are seen then NS 172, NS 345 and last is NS 198 with an SD40-2 leading the way.

Better late than never is what I always say!



A bit of serendipity as I was cleaning gutters and heard this train. Having no idea that the Erie Unit was in the area I was taken by surprise to see it come out of the woods. Always better to be lucky than good

A seemingly under powered NS 340 struggles up the hill with two SD70MAC's working hard to get past MP 195. Seen again at speed at CP Fleming on Norfolk Southern's AGS South

With the exception of Amtrak nothing but EMD's are leading Norfolk Southern trains at AGS South MP 195
