.   .   .   today before returning to McComb, MS checked out the KCS High Oak Yard facility in Pearl on the east side of Jackson, MS shooting a little of this and that as a NS UP runthrough intermodal passed through town.  Anyone know the story on the pair of exBNSF PRLX units that have been together all over the KCS system?

I think the 75M's were leased/borrowed from Progress to fill in for the KCS SD70MAC's that have been getting electrical modifications at the Progress shop here in Georgia (and maybe in KY as well).
Great bunch of photos from some seldom seen territory.  Thanks for sharing.
