More Ties and Ballast, Cloverdale and North.

Ties have been distributed from Greencastle south to Cloverdale. This ballast train came down off the St. Louis line and backed down to Poet at track speed!  (25 mph.)

Why is the train running UP power? Do they have trackage rights down to Cloverdale?

Inquiring minds really want to know!

Pooled power. This train had 4 units, UP leader, 2 CSX, UP trailing. I've shot UP, NS, CN and BNSF power on the local here. You will see power from all 7 Class 1's through Greencastle on the St.Louis line.
