Just saw a BNSF intermodel westbound on the La Plata railcam with 300 cars. 2 locos leading, 3 in the middle and 2 more on the end. Watched it on the Ft Madison cam and again on the La Plata cam. And it was making 60 through La Plata.

Wouldn't want to be the conductor on that train when the detector finds one at axle 1148 in the middle of the night and has to tell the engineer that he'll be back in a few days - maybe...
