Northbound Mixed Freight

So I haven’t had much to post lately.  Real-world life has been keeping me busy.  But I have a couple of model projects in the works that I’m waiting till nearer completion to post on.  I think you will be pleased.  There’s actual scenery cropping up on the Glover’s Bend layout!

In the meantime, here’s a video of a Norfolk Southern mixed freight headed Northbound out of Lexington that I caught.  There are a few interesting cars, including a SOO LINE covered hopper up on a flatcar and a former CB&Q covered hopper where the old logo is still (barely) visible.  Some pretty interesting graffiti, too, if you’re in to that sort of thing.  A BNSF SD70MAC and two NS Dash 9-40CWs up front, and it is flying.

I always seem to be on the wrong side of the sun for these things, and while the iPhone video capture is better than nothing, it’s less than ideal for this sort of thing.  Still, enjoy!
