A little late post from NS 171 with 80MACs
Author: srman

Last Sunday I was on the way home to Indiana after visiting family in North Carolina when I stopped in Chattanooga. I was totally unaware of 171 with the 80MACs in tow. After stopping at Tenbridge for awhile I decided to head a bit north of there. I was getting up near the Daisy area when I noticed a southbound train. A quick U turn to try to intercept. Found a crossing and after a brief wait here he came. To my surprise I see all these 80MACs! A couple of quick shots then I thought man would I like to get that one at Tenbridge. The race was on and with maybe 10-12 stop lights in front of me I was hoping for green lights. I made it to the park with no time to spare. NS 171 with 1015,9560 and PLRX SD80MAC's 7201,7220,7204,7211,7212,7208,7216,7207,7203 and 7210. Thanks for looking.

Joe, glad you were able to catch these. Breaks my heart however these units will no longer run on NS rails!!!

After Chattanooga anyone know where they went and ultimately which Progress Rail facility they 
ended up at?
Thanks for any information in advance.

Why is "Norfolk Southern" in red on these units? Is that a company thing, or some weird grafitti trend?

They had to be quickly marked with PRLX reporting marks for the trip, as they are not NS units anymore. I guess they didn't have any black paint.

Nice catch.  I can imagine the adrenalin rush to get there just in time.
