Big Horses, Small Train
Author: mtzctrain

On December 27th, I was in Peoria, IL with some time to railfan. I was able to capture NS train D49 leaving Peoria on it's trip back to Bloomington-Normal. 
On this day, the train had just 2 loads: a CAT tractor, and a Komatsu chassis. Photos taken as the train passed under the TP&W Farmdale Trestle.

Good catch... I'm jealous, I've always wanted to see an NS GP60 on the road, but they're pretty much never assigned to Western New York where I live...

Excellent catch and photos.  Thanks for this super NS photo posting.

We have a couple of the GP60s around central Illinois lately. I believe there's one I've seen on yard duty in Decatur. Definitely don't see very many of them anymore.

Was really surprised to see a GP60 on the 17N on Wednesday 2nd out and online.

And for clarification, that leader is a SD40E (ex Altoona helper)...
