I'd love to. Anything I can do from this end, or do I have to reduce size at the upload end?

The Olympic locos with the United Way SD-40 at Elburn, IL. We see a lot of these recently, with Chicago bidding on the 2016 Olympics.

A little off topic; not much however. Purely a lucky catch.

A UP SD70M pair has made three round trips between Allentown, PA, and Camden, NJ, as NS 38G and 39G.
Photo links on NS forum.

Mr. Simon Skymba (nomis) submitted this photo of a UP SD-70 handling an NS train under the wires of the Amtrak NE Corridor. Recalling the "Photoshop job' on the cover of November 2009 TRAINS of an Amtrak HHP-8 electric locomotive in UP livery, it makes me wonder could that TRAINS cover photo prove prophetic?

Again, I should note the linked photo is not my work; I haven't taken a rail photo in over twenty five years.

The UP-led freight train in Mr. Skymba's photo is actually on Conrail's Delair Branch. The adjacent track is Amtrak's Northeast Corridor Track 1. The catenary above the Delair Branch track remains from the PRR/PC era, but is not currently used. [unintentional pun]
I haven't taken a rail photo in nearly ten hours.

Edited to add that the trains that I photographed in Pennsauken used the Delair Branch and passed the location where Mr. Skymba photographed his train.
