Nice video but I'm afraid that is not NS 49G. Norfolk Southern hasn't run a 49G since 2004. That train is now 39G.

Here are some of my more recent videos...

39G originates at Pavonia Yard in Camden, NJ on a daily basis and runs to Allentown, PA. He generally does work at Spring Street Yard in Reading, PA, dropping off cars for 11A to take to Conway. 38G is the counterpart and runs from Allentown, PA to Camden, NJ. I don't think that he usually works Reading.

I'm no pro, just some schmuck with a digital camera, but if anyone is interested in videos of the mon line south of Shire Oaks, here's what I've taken in my hometown of Monongahela, PA:

2 NS SD80MACS lead an Eastbound NS 410 coaldrag up the NS West Slope through Parkhill, Pa at MP270.5 which is between Conemaugh and Mineral Point, Pa.

A set of SD40-2 helpers brings up the rear.

Trackwork required this train to use Track 3 Eastbound between Conemaugh and South Fork.
