Did something happen to ScotCP356? Looking at Heritage Units it appears that the Virginian unit made another round trip through western New York...east on a K042 and west on a K039

yeah, I was surprised to see photos of the Virginian unit through Rochester a few days ago, in the lead!
with no chatter about it in this thread at all..
ScotCP? you still out there?

He's also big on runthrough power. I was told the other day in the span of a half hour, there were 4 trains on the CSX main - one with 2UP's, 1 with 2 NS's, and 2 with 2 BNSF each. And nary a word reported here! Maybe this is no longer the "in" source for such things, and others have departed and left us here in the dark! :wink:

I knew about it! Don't worry, don't worry! I saw it at Wayneport at after 11:30 on a Saturday Morning, it met Q017, which it was pretty cool!!! There was also a K696 with UP power, 2 AC4400CW-CTE's & 1 UP SD70M, they were ahead of K042-26. I just forgot to post it here that Virginian Heritage is coming back in the lead position! Lol.

But I was surprise that the VGN went back north on a K039! Usually, most oil trains when leaving Philadelphia will head west onto the Sand Patch!

2 Heads Up!

1) NS 1069 (VGN) Leading U-ELUCXP1-34T on the BNSF to Chicago to hand the train over to CSX, this will be CSX K03X, K04X, K13X, or K14X. Location and Time: Galena IL at 845 pm.

2) UP 1996 (SP) Leading QNPCXP on UP, heading to East St. Louis IL to hand it over to CSX, I believe this will be CSX Q372 to Selkirk NY. Location and Time: Gothenburg, NE at 1047 pm.

UP C45ACCTE 7649
UP SD9043MAC 3730
