UP 8250         
Both trains POWER UP as UP SD9043MAC #8250 rounds the corner of track 4 carrying a loaded coal train with UNPATCHED SP AC4400CW second, and a UP AC4400CW at the back of the train, passing UP Dash 9-40CW #9809 (Autorack Train) with NS Dash 9-40CW second, and CSX SD70MAC #714! Notice the green signal on Track 2. This resulted in a TRIPLE HEADER, A VERY RARE SIGHT AT JOLIET UNION STATION! A pair of Dash 9's trotted by moments later. Tracks 1, 2, and 4 were occupied! :) :D

Nick Hart General I love these kind of shots, especially when they are powering up! UP Dash 9 beat the SD9043MAC to the diamonds. Take care. :) 8/3/2004 1:19:09 AM
