Idle to 8

IORY 3494 and two other I&O SD40’s knuckle down to pull this evenings Cincinnati – Lima turn up the hill as sun sets at Tremont, OH.

Tremont lies at the bottom of a grade, and crews swap trains at the siding here. Once a track warrant is issued, the engineer eases the northbound out of the siding, and cycles through the notches until it hits Run 8 at around this point in the picture. Add in 3 SD40’s on a respectably heavy train, and those 645’s will sing.
