Another goodie Jake. You can sure see the result of the throttle restrictions being lifted. It looks like they're doing close to 50 mph. I am surprised the power is conventional. I thought DP was required on loaded trains with this tonnage.

Used to see some of your night-time videos in the Fort Collins, CO area.  Looks like you've moved to North Dakota now..?
