Two SD70Ms and five auto racks - perfect.

Hi Brian, for some reason the short Youtu.be links don't work right in the tags I set up, you need to use the full length link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1rp9ZjhhW0 (click on options under the link on the youtube site and there's a tickbox for the long link)

If I can find a way to change that (as it defaults to giving the short link these days) I will...something else to work on. ;)

I recently saw on the Railstream webcam at Chesterton a train comprising of a single NS Dash 9 & 3 well cars one of which was double stacked.

Seen tonight on the Fostoria webcam, 2 CSX units (GEVO + Dash 9/AC4400) & 2 well cars loaded with 1 box.
9000 BHP to haul 1 container!

I follow a thread about Indiana Railroad sightings on another forum - the following sighting was posted this morning courtesy of user "Twitty" and I thought of this thread - another example of real railroads occasionally throwing up unlikely sounding trains!
90??-CIT 130 mixed Northbound Bargersville 136a three pack double stacked loaded center beam and a covered hopper
So...

SD9043MAC (in Indiana Railroad red)
SD9043MAC (in CIT leasing blue)
1x loaded 3 unit intermodal well car
1x Centerbeam flat
1x Covered hopper

Presumably comes with an oval of track and will be in shops for Christmas. ;)

(In case anyone was wondering - INRD are getting some pretty decent loads, but every so often something along these lines gets thrown up...)

Will that set be DCC equipped or DCC ready? :-)
