Default 3 Car - NS Business Train

While sitting at Spruce Creek, PA waiting for an EB, the scanner gave the report of an EB around CP GREY (Tyrone). This was good news, but when the dispathcer asked how many cars the NS 2641 had with it, we did not hear the response. This was puzzling...the first thing we thought was that it was a light engine move. We waited a while and finally heard the detector go off a few miles away. We waited some more and finally saw the headlight around the bend in the distance. Our first reaction was..."Cool, a light engine"...but then we notice something behind the clean SD70M....it had in tow three Norfolk Southern business cars (Alabama, Illinois, and Pennsylvania).

Very nice catch Andrew! Not sure what they'd be doing in Pennsylvania.
