Wabash unit in Enola back in Jan. 2013. Couldn't get a shot of it. Missed CNJ unit by 2 weeks at Spring St. Reading. Don't ask me symbols I don't keep up with all that. My buddies know all the goings on but I am too busy working.I occasionally rail fan on days off during the week. FYI I am NOT a "foamer". Just like shooting video of trains in historic locations if possible.

Onserved Savannah & Atlanta unit leading an NS-BNSF oil train passing BNSF Chicago Sub MP 18.32 about 445P today.

This is quite the program inaugurated by the NS; the cost of such is 'really' quite minimal. BNSF and CSX; are you reading?

ADMIN NOTE:

I deleted an advertising post.

As a member: I live on this historic CB&Q. Recently I've had a chance to see several heritage CARS move out past Parkville, MO, including a GN covered hopper.

Observed the Illinois Terminal "on the lead" of a WB (MTY) Oil train yesterday at about 4PM on BNSF Aurora Sub passing MP 18.

As an aside, if Yäger does get to be at the throttle of NS, I wonder what the fate of these Heritage units will be. The CP power that comes by here sure looks, in a word, "ratty".

Two so far, the first being the Illinois Terminal unit at Horseshoe Curve in September of 2014 ( would've snuck past me if not for that bright green and yellow paint ). The second was the Erie at Bound Brook in June of 2015, leading a tank train.
