Here we see SD40-2 #3352. This locomotive hasn't seen it's home rails here on the Pittsburgh Division since being replaced by the SD40E's in the helper pool.

Got a shock the other day when I seen this HERZOG Train. I couldn't figure out what it as then I seen the machine that picks up old ties from along side the tracks and it also lays down the new ties.

What I found neat about it is there is my initials on the lead locomotive MPM lol. I have a ton more pictures from the past 2 weeks that I will be posting soon. Again there is a mix of power from Dash 9's, GP38-2's, SD60's, SD70's, and very rare to be seen running a lone SD40-2 high hood.

While I was at Carney's Crossing today I saw the most famous SD40-2 that ran the Pittsburgh Division, It was SD40-2 #3347. For those of you who don't know 3347 was the last SD40-2 to still wear the Conrail Blue up until she was repainted black in 2010. This engine became very famous with the railfans and now you barely hear anything on 3347. Today you don't see SD40-2's as headend or rear power as they were replaced by the SD40E. The only time you will get to see these beautiful engines is in a consist now. Below is the picture I had gotten of her today.

Shes burning "warranty due" hours right now for the slow release at EMD, so she'll be around for just awhile.

This Heritage unit made an appearance Tuesday evening through East Palestine. Really backlit, but I couldn't move the spotlight. Goldth            
These are taken from a video, the light was so bad I figured a shaky video with sound would be better. Just a preview of this week end.
