Walking After Midnight
Title:  Walking After Midnight
Description:  Just after midnight, the Columbus switcher pauses for a few moments after getting a track warrant from the KCS to head out to the steel mill with 8718 and 1002 having the honors. It was nice to see 2 units in fairly matching paint banging them around together, doesn't happen often on this line.

CAGY 8718
Title:  CAGY 8718
Description:  The 8718 rest on the sand/turn table track. Just earlier this year this view would have encompassed dead locomotives that had sat for 15 years or more as parts sources. The 6 GP7's, 1 GP9, and 3 CF7's met the torch in brief effect in just over a week in April 2009.
