This is one of the last UP coal trains since BNSF took over. First time I've seen an SD60M on a Sherer train and the only one I've seen with three units on the lead and no DPU.
NS Q3M rounds Nickajack Lake and sets off the defect detector with a hot box just as I press the shutter button. Turns out the detector has a defect.. Almost all BNSF coal trains have set it off!!
NS handles The Ringling Brothers' circus train from Ft Wayne, IN to Huntsville, AL via around Nickajack Lake.
DPU on Sherer train, going around Nickajack Lake.
CSX Q125 whips by Nickajack Lake at sunset.
NS 734 (UP loaded coal train) knocks the signal down at Shell Mound along Nickajack Lake.
