RJ Corman Central Kentucky Lines has begun testing a Progress Rail Services PR22B genset unit. Today's test involved hauling loads up Jett Hill just outside Frankfort, Kentucky. This interesting consist includes the PRS genset, 8 loaded sand gons, and the RailPower RP20BD genset (which has been getting a thorough workout with Corman since December 2008.)
1) Running long hood forward, the genset heads south on the way up the hill.
2) Telephoto compression allows us to see the whole train running through a wooded area.
3) After a short break, the genset brings the train uphill again, seen here near the Springhill Road grade crossing.
