NS 099 stopped EB at NE on the NS Huntington district.
Roundhouse guys fixed the horn on its power, Soo 6061.
After repair, it could play a solo, and continued onto the
Fostoria district EB. towards England.

Nice catch Mark. Friday afternoon I noticed some new locomotives buried in the middle od East Wayne.

On Saturday morning, on a non railfan trip, this train caught us by surprise near Casad.
