WP Boxcar, NS 316 with 2 shiny UP, rear SD70ACU DPU, Caboose, etc
Author: cornerfieldhobby

I went up to Madison Ohio this evening to get a bit of CSX & NS mainline train action. Well, mostly NS Norfolk Southern was putting on the show.Trains in these photos are CSX Q363 with an original WP Western Pacific boxcar, NS freight / auto 316 with UP #7079 & #7078 with rear DPU distributed power unit EMD Electro Motive Division SD70ACU #7261, NS freight 309 lead by NS #8160, #4059 & #1152, NS local freight C64 lead by GP38-2 #5293 with a Caboose, 2 empty lumber center-beam cars & tank car, and finally a golden sunset on the NS Lake Erie District tracks before the sun went down.

Thank you for the photos.  Does anyone know why the AC inverter cabinets (or is it the DB grids?) are gone on UP 7078 and 7079?  Thx -- B

They appear to be in the middle of the C44ACM upgrade. Apparently the work was started at Erie and is going to be finished at Ft Worth on these untis.
