Five Union Railroad MP15DC switch engines arrives at Duquesne Class Yard with a coke train for the United States Steel Edgar Thompson Works on the Fourth of July 2013.
Four clean MP15's lead a southbound slab train out of Dravosburg Tunnel.
What was once tracks filled with hoppers and boxcars is now just weeds and gravel, but atleast the trains are still running!
A quartet of MP15's reverse to the switch so they can pull south and couple to the cab and shove out.
URR 25 reverses to the switch in North Bessemer, I believe it picked up broken down BLE 900 while doing this.
Ore loads from North Bessemer interchange head south on the N Bessemer Branch towards the US Steel Edgar Thomson Works at Braddock.
Running on jointed rail, the Union's hot slab train works upgrade at Bull Run. Standing trackside, it's easy to feel the heat emanating from the freshly cast slabs.
The slab train's short journey is almost over, the Irvin Works are just ahead.
