I saw NS-337(Linwood,N.C. to Charleston,S.C.) go south today with this lashup:
CR SD40-2 #3883 ,
CEFX SD40-2 #7189(ex-BN/still cascade green),
NS C40-9W.

NS-338 will have this power tomorrow with the catfish in the lead,he should leave Charleston around 8:00 to 10:00 Monday night,and should arrive in Linwood around 9:00 to 11:00 Tuesday morning.

A 'catfish" is a term ost railfans give NS's C40-9W's.If you look at their nose,it is wide,and the stripes resemble the "whiskers" on a catficf.Also,the NS system is a sea.NS has just under 1,000 catfish.So you refer to a sea full of catfish with a few oddballs(SD40-2's GP38-2's,C39-8's)here and their.
