Where is it headed? I'd love to catch one of them in Minnesota. Jeff Terry apparently did.

More than likely up the Monon. I'm not exactly sure how many trains they run, but CP has trackage rights to reach Louisville (as did the Milwaukee Road before it).

Live from Mt. Airy, NC...

Saw this unit here in Louisville on Friday afternoon. Was quite surprised as I hadn't expected to get a CP GEVO this far south. It was coupled between a pair of 8500 series AC4400CW's. They were waiting to wye the power before coupling up and I waited around for quite a while hoping to get a shot but there were a couple of NS switching moves going on and with the late afternoon light it just didn't work out.
For the person asking about where it was going, it was getting ready to leave Louisville and head north up the CSX's former Monon line, over which the CP has trackage rights to reach Louisville.
