That would have been fun.  But no, just waiting for traffic to clear.

Saw that consist - at least the NXTRACK and engineering cars - through here several months ago. I'm curious if it's part of a regular program, or if they send it out in advance of adding significant new business. Maybe both? I'm leaning towards the latter, at least locally. The Beardstown Sub is a lightly-trafficked branch with maybe four trains a day, and they were prepping for a new coal customer at the time.

Hehe - our 'lightly-trafficked branch lines' in Western Australia have two trains per month!  :P

Do you think they painted the M POWER bands on the car to give it an extra 10 HP?

Or just to floss?
