Default Video of the Last Unit With C&O on the Long Hood

Hi all.
Here is the link to the video talked about below:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ydl_PmWTdW8

Well, I was railfaning on Wednesday in Janesville WI, and the CSX set an rock train set an engine out for the WSOR to use, and at happened to be the last engine with the old C&O letters on the long hood. It was a pretty cool sight. Our plan was to chase the JMR back to Monroe WI since it was sort of on the way home to Freeport IL. In the back of my mind, I was thinking all day about how cool it would be to see that old C&O unit on the JMR, although I knew that the chances of that were pretty slim. So we sat near the WSOR Janesville roundhouse untill about 7pm, the time the crew for the JMR is called. We decided to go a couple miles West of Janesville to a rural crossing, so that we could time our chase to the next town right. We waited till about 9pm, and we finaly heard the horn. I watched trackside, and to my suprise the C&O was LEADING the way! The second unit was the newest unit on the WSOR roster, the WSOR 4054. We videoed the train in several different towns along the way, and I took the best clips, and kind of made a "movie" out of them, and posted them on youtube.com. Let me know what you think, thanks!

I was wondering where this one went. She passed through Columbia, SC a week and a half ago. Went to the CSX yard in Cayce and was parked first beside another train back lit, then finally move deep within the yard out of range for my 200mm lens.

Then she was gone.

Two things. 1, do you use touchtrace from CSX? I traced that car and it had the SAME statistics. 2, we are talking about the locomotive, not the car.

1. Yes


2. I know we are talking about the locomotive but the tracer identifies it as a car.
