Erie at Time by DragonWolfACe Erie at Time by DragonWolfACe
NS heritage unit 1068, the Erie heritage unit pulls out of the Bailey-Enlow Fork mine with a loaded coal drag under a light snow fall on a mid-February day. With the coming of oil fracking to the area, time has caught up with Time. A telephone pole line has been installed, limiting otherwise clear shots.

This is on the former Monongehela Railroad right?

I thought I recognized the name of the mine.  The Monongehela was made into a downloadable route, called the Norfolk Southern Coal District, for DTG's Train Simulator last year.  As flat as most of the route is, the climb out of Bailey Mine being the only serious gradients, with today's locomotives some of these coal trains must get to absolutely epic lengths!

It almost looks like a miniature. I think the haze from the snow is creating a tilt-shift effect. I really like it! :+fav:

Those engines must be immensely powerful to pull all that coal. Great shot the snow really sets it off.  :)

I agree with Dicky-Mint. I would've expected at least 4 engines.  Wonderful shot though!

Yeah, I would've expected four engines for that many cars. I'm no expert, though.
