NS Updates - October 2017

The Lehigh Valley ES44AC is right now in Oakwood Yard after coming in on last night's 120 along with a Dash 8 widecab and another ES44AC in regular horsehead.

EDIT: Actually, while I originally posted this, the Lehigh Valley ES44AC had already left Oakwood and was on the westbound Detroit District in northwest Ohio.

288 arrived at Oakwood Yard at just after 1700 EDT. One of the trailing units was 8103 (N&W ES44AC), but other units' numbers are unidentified due to them not being listed when sighting was originally posted by another user on heritageunits.com when 288 passed through Wyandotte at 1631 EDT.

332 arrived at Oakwood Yard about an hour ago. Power was Dash 9-44CW 9315 (horsehead), ES44AC 8102 (Pennsylvania Railroad ES44AC) and SD60E 7004 (horsehead).

Two ES44AC heritage units on Oakwood-bound trains in less than 24 hours...that was quite the railroading.
