A Mighty Fine X697
Title:  A Mighty Fine X697
Description:  The X697 is a Hamlet-Charlotte turn that runs in place of the currently abolished F767/F768(which needs to be reinstated but that's another story). The #8049 is looking rough but still sounded good and continues to do the work she was built to do over thirty years ago.

Intermodal Intangibles
Title:  Intermodal Intangibles
Description:  Much more to intermodal than just containers on rail cars. A view that captures the influx of bare chassis that is an ongoing maintenance and storage challenge for a terminal. In the background, a sideloader crane loads containers on what will be this day's Q199. Meanwhile, Q697 waits on the main for a local to clear in the Thrift block ahead.
