Default Heads up NS 61n

NS unit sulpher train 61n nearing Danville KY on the CS with CN 5718 (SD75I) and CN 5533 (SD60F). Not much good for us here in KY, but should be a good catch for the folks down south. Let us know if this power returns on the emtpies!!

it comes from up around Chicago, and goes down South of Atlanta. Empties and power will return north this weekend (I HOPE)... They wont get anywhere near the piedmont...sorry

this is not a everday move. The NS might run a 61N once a month, if that often...always with CN, WC or HLCX power...

Here are a few shots of this move...

A northbound run Sunday over the 3rd/2nd district would be wonderful! Looks like I'll be in the Harriman area so hopefully I will stumble on this one.
