Howling EMDs at Rade

By: Marc Lingenfelter


Description

Howling EMDs at Rade - Back in the early part of 2018 for a few runs, there was a power set going back and forth on the Pittsburgh Line, It was SD70 2572 and SD60 6673. 2572 had the rep of having a very loud turbocharger, and this train working up a long straight section of track did not disappoint anyone at all, although it was just me at this location. Now everything is missing from this scene. The 6673, 2572, the PRR Signals, the train 24W. All are gone.

Outstanding. The low angle makes the image even more dramatic.
