Snow kicks up as a CEFX SD40-2 in a SD45 carbody hauls Q383 westward with a Burlington Northern SD9 trailing. Note, the SD9 was RUNNING! Pure 567 goodness. Bluebirds are what the CEFX units where nicknamed for their...blue paint.
The next westbound was a S383, second section of Cumberland to Chicago freight Q383. It was led by a Santa Fe Dash8 warbonnet and BN SD40-2. I would shoot it meeting Q368 with a few CSX units, a BN SD40-2, and a ATSF B40-8, one of two still in ATSF paint. Ironically enough, I would end up shooting ANOTHER BN SD9 on Norfolk Southern at dusk. I had yet to see any SD9s at that point and wouldnt see another until last year.
It was a good day.
