Sometimes you get lucky - S&A and MGA Units meet
Author: MrMichael

Sometimes you just happen to be in the right place at the right time - MGA is acting as DPU for an eastbound to Reybold, DE, while S&A is leading a westbound back to the Dakotas. Taken from the Lucknow Intermodal facility between I-81 and Rockville Viaduct in Harrisburg, PA.

Sorry for the low quality as they are just grab shots with an iPhone.

Looks good to me! Thanks for sharing.

So you are saying that you were not tracking either unit? That is a long shot to be there right when the meet happened. I'm glad you had your iPhone.

Based on the photo location, I'm guessing he either works at the van site there or drives a truck....

Nope not a van/truck driver - I am an NS employee though. Was inspecting our new expansion at Lucknow intermodal and spotted the MGA unit. No sooner did I take out my phone than here came the S&A leading her train too!

I was actually looking for the Lehigh Valley Unit - I had heard about that one on TO of course. Last I saw she is still west of Altoona.

It's alot easier when one of them isn't moving... Nice catch, nonetheless.
