    Not only was I surprised to see freight running during daytime here in Kissimmee, Fl. I was pleasntly surprised to see Wisconsin Central SD45's leading the pack of 6 units on this junk train heading Westbound by timetable and South buy direction.

    Thank you Mr. Miller!

    BTW, My grandfather Robert Jackson worked out of Mingo Junction on the PRR 1940's thru late 1950's. Had many a cab-ride as a young boy. He lived in Weirton, WVA.

    Jerry,
    That is one thing that you will never forget. I bet that was a great experience? You are welcome for the comment.
