Union Pacific Unit Coal Train From Berea Tower, Berea, OH, USA, 1997

Union Pacific Unit Coal Train From Berea Tower, Berea, OH, USA, 1997
Obviously, it's not possible to get a shot like this except for when you're on an organized tour! I was, however, one of the lucky ones. This train appears to be a UP unit coal train, and it was indeed a unit coal train, but I'm more than 90% certain the power was leased by Conrail, as these were Conrail tracks in 1997. I'm not aware of UP coming this far east...ever, and UP were a common lessor to Conrail in those days. Still it makes a cool title for my photo. :-)
