Title:  WE 6351 (3)
Description:  Empty coke train K301-13 sits at a location called "Pig Pen", facing west and waiting for a new crew. This EMD SD40-2 was built in February 1986 and already has an interesting history.

Title:  WE 5391 (3)
Description:  This time a former Rio Grande gets to be on the front of the coke train. Built in August 1978 as DRGW 5391. EMD SD40T-2. The train is running here but not moving, as it was still needing a CSX crew to take it onto their line. With so many darn trees on each side, all I could do was a front shot.

Description:  One of the Wheeling and Lake Eries "Blues Brothers", on loaded coke train K302-17. Built as MP 3198 in March 1975. Also former GATX 7377 and GSCX 7377. The dark blue patch on the nose is from when it had GATX on the front. The steel mill that these coke trains were being sent to was owned by RG Steel and the company has filed for bankruptcy in 2012, so the coke and ore trains are now a thing of the past.
