Remarks & Notes 
After swapping out at Lookout, the outbound crew on CSX Q282-27 (Baldwin,FL-Louisville,KY) is on board, and its now picking up the pace as it's get a running head start for Raccoon Mountain on the old single track main (MP J-145.7 Wauhatchie). On the head of this long empty vehicle train is a pair of Norfolk Southern motors, but the lead unit is definitely one that is a rare of the bunch. NS 6814 is one of nine former BN SD60M's that was acquired by Norfolk Southern from National Railway Equipment (NREX) during the fourth quarter of the 2014 season. In within the following months after their purchase they were sent to Altoona, for an inspection, and a repaint, thus the genesis of the Norfolk Southern's Triclops Thoroughbred. 6814, and it's sister unit is most definitely shoo-in as part of the strange and unusual side of the NS locomotive roster in my book. "Personally they would still good in Cascade Green, but you can't win them all!"
