Title:  CN 2589, NS 9787, NS 2719
Description:  Empty sand train waiting for a 4pm departure time on the Southwest Pennsylvania Railroad in Wheeler Bottom. It was nice to see a CN leading the train again. Note that the ballast, rails, and ties are all new.

CN 2589 on empty sand train (1)
Title:  CN 2589 on empty sand train (1)
Description:  Approaching the CSX crossover in Broadford at restricted speed, which means it was moving as fast as a person can jog. The sun was still shining in the background. I hate when that happens.

CN 2589 on empty sand train (2)
Title:  CN 2589 on empty sand train (2)
Description:  Going west on CSX rails in Broadford, almost at the junction with Southwest Pennsylvania Railroad. The sun was out here, but the train was going at restricted speed and so the clouds came in by the time the train got here. The signals at the right are lit for an eastbound train on CSX that came through right after this.
