Rumor has it NS OCS is deadheading to st louis one way or another thru ft wayne, hearing possible NKP, if so might see some evening light. But i doubt i bother going down to Wabash. let me know any reports of sightings anyone finds!

The OCS is an Office Car Special, I.E. Norfolk Southern's business train-most always led by the F-unit locomotives. A deadhead move is a move without any VIP's on board to position the train for an upcoming trip.
The sweetest sounds in the world: A pair 567's at idle, and a non turbo 645 in run 8!
