:lol:

I went back an hour ago and saw the following:

M9G, NS (Still LMS) 8462, CSXT (Still LMS) 7922, CSX 7327, UP 4896.

Two LMS units on one train is VERY! rare. Note that all the units on this train were seen yesterday.

070 (CSX detour train) came through later with two CSX CW44AC's, the leader was 596, a Dark Future unit, second was #41 in Bright Future. The detour is a result of the pileup on CSX's Chicago Line. Not a single black cat(fish) today!

WHO'S RAILROAD IS THIS!!?
