A Few Recent Westbounds…

June 26, 2010

I’m headed out to a wedding, but I thought I’d post a few recent shots from the Glidden sub.

The KATCI is the train that’s nicknamed “the juice train” because it frequently has a head end block of Tropicana reefers, but no juice today.

The QEWWC is a daily mid-afternoon departure from Englewood, which puts it in my neck of the woods in the late afternoon. This train always runs heavy, sometimes over 12,000 tons, making it a regular for DPU locomotives cut in, or on the rear.

It’s not common to see older power like nearly 20-year-old C40-8W 9372 in a DPU set.
