EMDX 1201 Cat SD70 Ace
Author: Q4960

I took an extra 15 minutes for lunch today and caught the EMDX 1201, Cat SD70 ace at Carlock, Illinois [1st two shots]. After work I caught the train, with just the single unit, in Bloomington, Illinois en route to Decatur, Illinois.

Is this engine pulling CAT loads from Peoria to Decatur then returning to Peoria on a regular basis?

John,
the Cat ACe # 1201 should lead tonites NS #055 ( Caterpillar hi wide loads from Peoria to Port of Savannah GA ) the Cat loads move on the NS local to Decatur Il and once a week they assemble a high wide train of nothing but Cat and Komatsu loads . I am hearing the Cat engine will run solo and Cat PR will be follwing the train.

Thanks Mark. I assume the train will go through Louisville over to the CNTOP.

Train is scheduled out of Decatur tonight at approximately 0300 hours and will head down the Brooklyn District out of Decatur to St. Louis. EMDX 1201 will be the only unit on the train when it leaves Decatur.

And John, yes. Through Louisville to the CNOTP once it takes the Southern-West District from St. Louis to Princeton, IN and then the Southern-East District from Princeton to Louisville.

Can anybody take photos of the rest of the rest?
I'm out west and probably will never see this unit run
and as a long time Cat mechanic, I would enjoy photos
of the loads also!!
Thanks in advance.

Sweet looking paint scheme. Just needs to have the headlight moved up and between the numberboards and move the EMD hearld to where the headlight was locatedon the nose.

No, if anything the should add a CAT logo on the nose on the left side of the headlight.
Anyway it's a good looking paint scheme, it matches the tractor on the flatcar behind it, VERY COOL.!
