A GE/EMD mix of locos operated by Aurizon subsidiary Bulk Central head 40-wagon train #2182 loaded grain from Tailem Bend to Port Adelaide upgrade near Callington, South Australia on 23 December 2022.
Locos GWU015/GWA002/GWA006 all carry former Genesee & Wyoming Australia/ One Rail Australia colours, which over time will be superseded by Aurizon's all over plain yellow.

Same colours, different name by Bingley Hall, on Flickr

Got some good videos in Texas a couple weeks ago.

Some old NS power.


And a rare Amtrak loco out due to the storm from what I heard.

Managed to catch the westbound CSX L135 leaving Gettysburg today.  Another cold, windy day at the railroad cut.


CSX has recently changed up some of the ops around the area.  L136 used to operate out of Curtis Bay, MD, now it operates out of Hanover, PA.  So traffic from Maryland Midland at Emory Grove now comes up thru Hanover and Gettysburg to Hagerstown.  Makes for much longer trains now some days

Thank you kindly. I was told that on Fridays they combine power from the locals out of Logan and run to Bozeman to meet with a turn out of Laurel. Think the power weekends in Livingston getting serviced and swapped out. There's a local based in Logan that works the 2nd Sub mainline west of Logan (cement plant at Trident), 5th Sub (Three Forks, Sappington, Whitehall and the ballast pit near Pipestone), and 6th Sub (branch off 5th Sub at Sappington to Harrison). A second local works the 2nd Sub main between Livingston and Logan.

For the record, power is ex DT&I, D&RGW, UP, D&RGW... thinking not going to have work with BNSF.
