Caught it at Muncie first, then caught the Q263 with CNW unit in trail, then caught the NS 142 with a former LMS unit going toward Elkhart.  All at CP230 in Muncie within 20 minutes.  Not a bad quick grab trip.  Oh and toss in a Q358 and NS 54A for some flavor.


5 trains in roughly 45 minutes.

CSX decided to be nice today and send us some colorful paint schemes our way.  NS even offered up a couple as well, both using the Frankfort District. I was able to catch 5 trains in about an hour or so. Matt had joined us after the Q358 had been through earlier.
The order goes something like this:
1. Q358, standard CSX power.
2. Q218  CN power. Finally got a day time shot of these engines. They usually run later in the evening it seems like...
3. NS54A, standard NS power. The only train I didn't record on Council. Got him at CP230. Note the new ATCS tower in the background.
4. Q263, standard CSX power for the first two engines in the consist. The third unit was the ex CNW unit, UP tagged, and Operation Life
    Saver logo on the side. Still in CNW paint as well. Neat catch on this train.
5. NS142, standard NS power for the first three units, and then a LMS unit in the consist...
6. And the return of "Jackwagon". As I was recording the NS142, he managed to ride his bike in front of the camera and park not two feet
    from the tracks. I just shook my head... ::)

What was really priceless was the look on his face when he realized that there was a camera there recording the train. He knew he had been caught on video... Unfortunately he was off to the side of the video and I didn't catch his expression. It was funny...

Same pair that came through a couple of days ago on Q132?
The gates are going down and the people are starting to frown.

16 down, 4 to go.

I don't know which two came through earlier in the week, but it is definitely possible.  Just take the power from Livernois to Sterling and run them on the Q233.
