Monster Train
Author: Trolleysteve

Just watched a massive coal train travelling westbound through Downtown Cleveland. It had 2 engines on the head end, 3 midtrain, and 2 more at the back. Is this some kind of new normal?

It's 778. Been running for a bit now, and stacks out at around 13,000 feet - 30,000 tons +/-. Runs down to Roanoke where it's split into 2 trains for the Progress Energy (Duke Power) Hyco, NC power plant.

Yup, a new normal.  "Let's see how much we can get away with."
