We knew that 132 was taking the connection from the NKP at GC to CP 222 on the NYC so we hot-footed it into Vermilion to catch it coming through.
NS high nose Geep 38 5205 leads UP SD70M on train 132 eastbound across the Vermilion River at NYC MP 220.
Note the width of the piers supporting the deck girder, were there 4 tracks here at one time?
The NYC crosses above the NKP and heads toward Berea less than a half mile from here. When the head end had just passed the overpass the 220.9 hotbox detector went off for the 30th axle on this side of the train. We didn't see anything and they didn't find anything which is lucky because an eastbound pig train is 10 minutes behind them and there are westbounds due on track 1 at any minute!
