  1. and is still in decently clean zebra stripes

  2. CN 9433 is still on the roster and is still in service, one of 59 gp40-2lw/gp40-2ws

  3. Great photo! Hmm too bad the 9433 was leading because it is not equipped with dynamic brakes like the Conrail units the train will have to power brake down Copetown hill. The first two Conrail units are ex Erie Lackawanna SD45-2 built with extra larger fuel tanks.
    Another interesting note about this location us the shack located beside the signal. There is actually an underground river right near this location, just west of the bridge. The river was subjected to flooding unexpectedly, so they had a foreman out there 24/7 just in case trains had to be warned. The river is still there of course, but the shack has long since been torn down and technology has taken its place in the form of underground sensors that warn trains of high water conditions.
