I found this video on YouTube.  While the entire video is  worth watching, there are two especially interesting segments.

First at the 6:25 minute point, there is a train with 10 engines and 13 cars.  There is a prototype for everything we do with model trains!  I suspect that this is a power balancing move.  

Second at the 25 minute point, a Schnable car is carrying a decommissioned nuclear reactor.  This is the first time I have seen this type of car in use anywhere.  I thought it is interesting that a rail truck leads this train and that the train has several cabooses.  NH Joe

The first caboose looks like it's been updated, not sure how to describe but it's more modern looking.  I wonder what they are used for as both look like they're in excellent in service shape.  That Schnabel was huge too, I have never seen one in person, only videos and pictures, has to be pretty fantastic up close.  I have seen road go trailers of similar design though, always with escorts and taking up two lanes.
