Dates:9/20/2011 - 9/20/2011
Album Info:It was good to be back on the Southside! CSX provided plenty of throwback catches and NS also slipped in a few good trains as well. Enjoy spartan cab power with a few widecabs here and there. I spent most of my time between Blue Island and Pine Jct, the usual stomping grounds. Leave comments!
