29G got into Sterling a few minutes ago. They dropped the 3rd engine probably at North Yard. They had only NS 7696/4072 (DC to AC) patch

Alright, "Norfolk Southern 4000 (AC44C6M) - DC to AC Conversion (Blue)" is leading NS 120 to Oakwood Yard, Melvindale!!!! Is there a chance this power will head up the "Sterling Secondary" to Sterling Heights? It seems power from the old "Wabash®" ends up here! I've never caught a "DC to AC Conversion" unit! Man this would be cool! :D "Heritage Units" NS 4000 link: https://heritageunits.com/locomotive/detail/NS4000

It’s a 50/50 shot since it came up on 120. It could either go on NS 255 which is a Southbound OUT of Oakwood or it could go on 176 from Oakwood to Sterling. The call times of 255 and 176 are 1145PM and 501PM.
