Title:  Feb 15, 2006 - "Getting to know you, getting to know alllll about you....."
Description:  OK, you don't want me singing! This is the third time I have seen this particular locomotive leading the hot pig trains between New Jersey and Atlanta both ways. I just saw this guy Sunday in Lowell, NC and on 212 the end of last month. Today, 7116 is in charge of 7119 (whom has tagged along all this time too) and another new friend as they thunder through Easley, SC with train 213. They are about to meet rerouted train 140 whom is coming up in a matter of seconds, unfortunattly, I couldn't get a shot of them, but they would meet in town during rushhour.

Mar 25, 2006 - Diverging clear track 1 to track 2
Title:  Mar 25, 2006 - Diverging clear track 1 to track 2
Description:  I have never seen this crossover used for anything since this part of the DC to Atlanta mainline isn't caked with heavy traffic. At the last minute, the dispatcher and 140 were alerted by someone higher up to pick up the Palmetto State private car, but due to 140 having large road engines, the plan was aborted and P35 may be sent up this coming week to retrieve the varnish instead. I have no clue where the Palmetto State will go from that point.
