Normally, I wouldn't bother trying to get a shot in such extreme low-light conditions. However, with SD9043MACs all but gone from US railroads, I figured it was worth it! This SD9043MAC went from UP to Indiana Railroad. The shortline received four of these (on lease) from CIT Leasing in July 2016. It was either a very short lease, or Indiana Railroad was not happy with the units. Whatever the reason, Norfolk Southern bought them and, as you can see, patched them. But for now, they are still in Indiana Railroad colors. So this was an interesting catch worth the low-light conditions!
