Last two of NS 740. Kind of surprised that coal still moving as of late I have seen quite a few loaded coal trains; thought the current administration wanted to slowly get away from fossil fuels? Nice to see that industry still producing. Have a good week all...

The LV heritage unit images are spot on excellent.  Nice to image that it is a 21st century incarnation of the Valley hauling coal in PA.  Having a dis-similar paint scheme for the 2nd unit makes it all the more LV like.

740 is for a power plant(s)...they are routing them your way, then south/southeast instead of down through Pa....

There is still demand for export coal.
