Cool  - love those URR MP15s!  Also see you caught a Mon line intermodal going by in the last scene.  That is a very neat place to fan, especially when viewing high up from the Westinghouse Bridge.

 Nice.Right in my back yard.  The Double Stacker in fact did come down the Mon Line from the Ohio Connecting bridge from the main line (Ft. Wayne Line). Now it's actually off the Mon Line and on the Port Perry branch headed east  to the Pittsburgh Line. Ft. Wayne Line changes to the Pittsburgh Line in downtown Pittsburgh heading east. Port Perry branch is approximately 2 miles long and is single track. A choke point for Norfolk Southern trains with double stacked containers and autoracks. They will not fit through downtown Pittsburgh account low bridges and the train canopies at the former Pennsy Amtrak station in Pittsburgh.

Is the Union RR big enough to require a signaled mainline, and on other lines??
