In July 2015, Soo Line SD60 #6037 leads CSX Jersey-bound ethanol train K418 into Selkirk Yard at CP 14, back when Ben's Bridge still stood.
CSX K418-14 is working hard trying to keep up a good pace on Pettit Hill just north of the farming community of White, GA on the CSX Etowah Sub (MP C-412.2). The sites and sound of an old EMD wor... (more)
The power for K418 is parked on the secondary covered in snow. The previous day brought the first heavy snowfall this winter which dumped over 2 feet of snow on the region.

CSX ethanol train K418 sits on the secondary after a short downpour of rain. On point to lead back north is a CP SD40-2 painted in the "Pacman" scheme.
Even in CP Red these SD60's still look good, but I still prefer seeing a SOO (tucked in behind 6247) any day. Also note the plane that has just taken off from Newark Airport.
"SOO Line @ Tremley"
A SOO SD60 and a pair of NS units brought ethanol train K418 to Tremley. This unit is one of only a handful of SOO painted SD60's left on the Canadian Pacific roster.
A three unit set of former SOO Line SD60's sit on the secondary, having come in the night before on loaded ethanol train K418.
A trio of veteran EMD units sit on the Tremley siding after shoving in loaded ethanol cars.
The power off K418 sits on the siding at Tremley Point. A fresh coating of snow fell the day before.
SOO Line lives! A SOO SD60 and a CP GEVO are the power for ethanol train K418. The string of cars it brought are off getting unloaded while another ethanol train waits up the track.
CP 9521, with a new paint job, leads K418 past the remains of a sunken barge.
