Imagine the surprise of those motorists seeing "passenger" equipment going by.

Heard W945 get paper to go north from the yard this afternoon. No idea what it was as I couldn't get down to the tracks.

A loaded military train came down the other day.

This afternoon the third unit on an inbound was a BC Rail cowl body.

A couple of "Tonka Toys" headed north through "BRAD" this afternoon. No idea where they were headed.

Two engines came down light earlier and are now going back north with stacks on the headend. Leader is a blue CEFX leaser widecab.

Light power was probably from the grain train.

Can DPUs control from either side? I wonder if the train came in one direction, they tacked cars on what was the head end, and sent it out with what had been the DPU as leader.

Heard DS speaking with B778 today - the inspection train was headed back south at some point today.

A lot of CN power lately on the line these days. All look like brand new locomotives as well.

Could these be engines coming back from rebuild at AMP in Dansville?

The last few that I have seen where new units in use on trains heading south. If I only saw them on northbound trains that would have been a good guess though.

Both trains today consisted of all CSX power. They passed each other in Pulaski just after 4pm.
