Nicly done. The lone tank car is odd.

Thanks. Z120 often has a few non-intermodal cars mid-train, usually gondolas and tank cars. A single tank car is a little unusual.

Really enjoyed the video, John. And as a resident of the semiarid Southwest, nice to see all the vegetation and not be in all the vegetation. Not a fan of bugs; I spent far too many years in Missouri.

Thanks,

As for the bugs, there seem to be fewer and fewer every year. In one way that's a blessing,
but I must wonder what the consequences will be long term.

Those first two units are on 123 this morning (Tuesday).  Not sure about the third one.  The ex-CREX doesn't have PTC, so it can't lead (123 goes through to Chicago).

The only unit that was facing backwards on Z120 is leading Q123. All three were on Z120.
