Railfanning NS Greenville District 06-07-17: Tier 4 Credit, UPs, SD70, Rail Train, And More



Sorry for the long wait. That day is a really successful railfanning day for the Greenville DIstrict. I missed 212 when arriving but it had a Dash 9 leading an ACe that day so I am not disappointed. The Intermodals seem to have nothing special, but the Manifests are wehere the good stuff is on. Enjoy.
