NS 92X With 2-GREX Dump Train Sets
Yesterday NS ran a ballast train symbol 92X (MACON, GA – KNOXVILLE, TN) that consisted of two GREX Dump Train sets. First time I have seen one, let alone two of these interesting material handling trains making a move around these parts. The below link has a good video of this equipment in action along with a detailed data sheet.
Seen here yesterday at Rockmart Georgia north bound on the NS North Atlanta District.
#1. NS #9138 with a bit of over-spray from the painting of the handrails leads 92X.
#2. The first section was GREX 2600 @ 960ft at about 12 cars.
#3. The second section, a newer one, GREX 9900 at 370ft at seven cars.

The first section has to be on streight track to dump. That rear newer set can be unloaded in curves.
