I knew this shot was going to be backlit, but I'm actually really pleased with the results! A pair of SD70ACes lead a trio of GEs on a westbound coal empty at Blue Mountain Road Crossing. The trees still carry a touch of powder with them from a snowstorm a day earlier.

Thanks Ted! Good eye on the fourth unit. It was CNW 8819, one of the 35 AC4400CWs they received just before becoming a part of UP in 1995.

Fantastic photo. It looks like the fourth unit is one of the CNW's. That's a bonus!
