Steel City Junction Series: NS, CSX, and Amtrak At Pine Jct. Gary, IN. 11-19-09.

Lots of trains rolled under the dreary Gary skies this morning and even though there was sporadic rain, I still was out. I compiled so much footage today that I have to make it into two videos! Make sure you view the following video featuring CN/EJ&E footage around the Pine area. 8:25AM- A manifest that left Chicago earlier this morning now hits Pine at track speed. NS SD70M-2 #2670 BNSF C44-9W #740 8:40AM- Inbound Amtrak Lake Shore Limited 49 travels into Pine at it’s expected time. P42DC #68 P42DC #124 8:41AM- Three ex-UP SD40-2s go along for the ride on an Eastbound CSX manifest. Could these units be going to LTE? CSXT AC4400CW #70 CSXT ES44DC #5327 9:17AM- A stacktrain of mostly domestic containers lumbers on for Chicago with a four-pack of power.
