    Taken by Mrs. Hardcoaler with her cell phone on 07/02/21 at Seneca, SC is a train on an NS branch that runs about 40 miles from the mainline to Belton, SC. The line enjoys some healthy tonnage, including interchange with the Pickens. We were helping our kid move that day and couldn't believe our good fortune during an evening walk. This was a nighttime train and was only recently changed to run in daylight. The 7127 is a GP-60, as is the second unit.

    Two takes at the 1905-built, Minot Soo Line freight house.
    CP H92 eastbound and a BNSF transfer with a jen-you-wine Soo caboose. Doesn't get much more Soo than that!

    Speaking of Kansas, the following photo brings to mind Dorothy's line from The Wizard of Oz: "Toto, I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore."
    It's definitely not 'somewhere over the rainbow', either.

    You can have any color of locomotive you want as long as it's black.

    I had to zoom in and try to read the road name to see if you were local to me because the color scheme looks a LOT like the Wheeling and Lake Erie locomotives that run around here.
