Its not all coal  Contributor's Pick!       
An eastbound COFC train passes under the SCL at Petersburg. This route is most often used for coal trains to bypass downtown Petersburg due to congestion issues caused by 200 plus car coal trains, as well as having a better grade profile. There is merchandise freight as well, as this 85 car intermodal train shows.
