I caught the Iowa Interstate’s weekly coal train late this afternoon.
Led by three Norfolk Southern units (NS 9233, NS 2620 and NS 9120), the train’s 96 cars were loaded at the Shay Mine near Carlinville, Illinois for ADM in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Power and train runs through on the Iowa Interstate.
I shot scenes at Rome, Chillicothe and near Hopewell off Rt. 29.
