A new SD70 leads a Santa Fe and NS GE on a coal train.
A westbound NS coal train glides across the flats viaduct overlooking mini-mountains of aggregate material used by a concrete making company

Eastbound over the Pope Lick Trestle.
Eastbound between Louisville and Danville. In the age of poor variety I'll take an old school SD70 with a standard cab Dash 9 any day of the week.
