    In my neck of the woods here, I have seen NS, UP & BNSF all lashed up together in one train. Those units get around, but I have also heard they were in Altoona getting repairs. Who knows, anyways, Great Picture.:thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    AHH...more shots(and GREAT shots too!:thumb: )of the "power pool":thumb: . MANY roads are in it now days;) . instead of roads that are in need of more locomotive power leasing units, they join in on the "power pool", this way the door swings both ways, when one road needs power, another will lone it, and vice versa:thumb:. :D -Deano

    Sometimes around here you'll see UP and BNSF together but most of the time it's KCS with BNSF power 97% used for coal service. We went by one of the UP yards off of I-20 in Shreveport today and I saw A UP train with a NS locomotive and another which was a bit strange looking for a CN locomotive. It was kinda light gray with CN and one spot with the white and black stripes but had a orange line dropping down from the cab and running along the base of the walkway all the way to the rear. The # was 6928 aand had a reporting mark of CW. Anyone know about this one?

    if it was a grey unit marked CN, it was one of the alstorm leased rebuilds for the GTW lettered CN. there are also former KCS units patched to CN/GTW former CN units rebuilt in some cases
