This video was shot on 3-11-06 in Kirkwood Missouri. The train is train CNAAE-08 From the Powder River Basin to New Madrid Missouri.

This video was almost missed...I got out of the house on an excuse of a Job Interview and went down there to see if I could catch Train I-LADU-09.

I missed ILADU09 by 5 minutes, but I decided to stick around since there was a green on Main #2...hoping that it would be a manifest with SD40-2's.

As it turned out, it was this train, CNAAE08 with UP 6741. You can hear me groan when I see that is a plain jane AC4400CW. I can't remember what I said afterwords....the next words I spoke were....

..."HOLY CRAP!"...
