Here is something you don't see often in Northeast Ohio.
Went up this evening to watch some trains in Madison Ohio. Out of the trains I saw, here was the best train. NS Norfolk Southern westbound loaded coal train symbol 552 lead by 4 UP Union Pacific's - American Flag SD70ACe #8751, letters SD70M #4297, flared raditors American Flag SD70M #5086 & ES44AC #5331 pulling 130 loaded coal cars. This train is bound for Illinois came up from southwestern Pennsylvania.
Plus an added bonus of seeing CSX eastbound freight train Q388 with a UP AC6000CW & BNSF H2 Dash 9 in consist.

4 UP's lead coal

The most my grandson and i have seen was six UP units pulling 13,000 tons of crushed rock out of Mcneil Texas.  The driver that delivered the crew told us about the load but not the number of engines.  It was on us before i realized there were six engines.  

We have seen one train with four engines but usually it is only three engines pulling containers, auto carriers, tanks and hoppers.  Its surprising how often we see Canadian cars.
