[Watch in HD] On the 13th of August, I took a trip down to the CN/CSX diamond at Effingham, Illinois and eventually met up with Brandon Warnick (84318i) and Colby McLaughlin (colbytrainman). Eager to try out my new Canon video camera I received not too long ago, I got some good catches on the Main Line of Mid-America.
Shot #1 - 10:59 a.m. (0:13) After meeting A431 and swapping crews at Neoga, the southbound CN A-Train from Decatur heads into Effingham to do work at the yard. CN C44-9W 2662 CN SD70M-2 8007
Shot #2 - 12:15 p.m. (1:04) Amtrak 391 arrives (late, like always) to pick up and drop off passengers. Note the Northeast Regional car behind the Amtrak locomotive. AMTK P42DC 27
Shot #3 - 12:30 p.m. (2:34) Right on the heels of Amtrak was CN M336 with the CN SD70M-2's K5LLA horn blaring. CN SD70M-2 8848 CN C44-9W 2673
Shot #4 - 1:32 p.m. (4:18) After the Effingham local did some work north of the diamond (dropped off a grain car for Effingham Equity), CN M397 with a repainted BC Rail Dash 8 leading comes south with work to be done at the yard today. The train eventually slows down once they reach the yard office to pick up paperwork regarding their pickups/setouts. BCOL/CN Dash 8-40CM 4615 CN SD75I 5664
