The hump job power is almost done with this cut of cars. Note the use of the rarely photographed NS 860, last photographed by Batman, in photo id: 146744.
Two brotherly SD38's shove to and fro' as the hump engines labor away in the background.
Railpictures.net's own Casey Thomason at the throttle of the 6302 gives a friendly wave for this pace shot.
