Full House
Title:  Full House
Description:  A loaded coal train waits on the main while the regional freight wraps up work here. They have just left the cut of cars at the right for Norfolk Southern whose track crosses in the background. They will now head north towards Spruce Pine where they will most likely stop to deliver cars for Feldspar and other small industries. The power for the regional has just re-coupled to their train which is blocking the main in the north portal of Marion Tunnel. Once clear, the coal drag will head south. There is also an SD60I, a unit that I have never seen, idling here for reasons unknown to me.

Close Up of 979 at a combined 75mph
Title:  Close Up of 979 at a combined 75mph
Description:  After seeing a green signal at Hannon, I went down the line looking for a southbound and found it. I was going 45 and this Duke Power coal train was going 30 for a combined speed of 75. This shot which I personally find this shot amazing. It is the product of goof by my girlfriend. I was driving and asked her to shoot the shot as we went by. Turns out she was too short to get the locomotive in focus due to the elevation of the track. But the angle somehow came out just perfect in my opinion. I also got some video of this train at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oL_W3sS9GKs.

We sat at the 2nd Street Crossing for almost an hour while this rail train left out rail for a railing crew. People turning around let us eventually get to the front.
