    EWG and the Tunnel Motor

    unusual train on the Geiger Spur

    A sudden surge in inbound steel resulted in some creative railroading as these loads need to be PUSHED into the industry spot. A 4-car runaround track adds a lot of time to the runaround. As a result, two SD45s, 375 and 8925, pulled the loads with GP7 1617 along for the ride buried 8 cars...
