Exactly one year ago, I caught a Canadian National southbound ore train at this same location led by an IC "death star." Today, one year later, I was fortunate enough to catch another southbound ore train, this time led by a CN SD60. This line is the former mainline of the Bessemer and Lake Erie railroad but the line was bought out by Canadian National in 2004. Today, operations are still the same but the old B&LE orange is rarely seen. Although I was hoping to photograph some orange, I will settle for the bright red of a CN standard cab.
The EMD SD (special duty) series are a strong and reliable kind of locomotive which still serve America's rails today. They have proved themselves by clocking in several million miles of freight service.
