Hotshoe by factorone33 Hotshoe by factorone33
I was going to submit this back with the first start of the series, and apparently I either passed over it, or didn't think it worth of submission at the time. I was mistaken if the latter was the case.

No, I'm not referencing the flash port on top of almost every single SLR made (except for the full-frame ones). But a fast-moving train.

This Z-train double-stack (also seen here) was moving fast down the UP transcon near Topeka, KS. On the point is ES44AC (C45AC-CTE) #7700 and SD70M #4424.

Once again, You got a model wrong.

UP 4424 is an SD70M.

Also, UP does not own any SD70MACs.

Nice shot, and like the ES44AC on the point.

(I refer to the locomotives by the manufacturer's designations, not the designations that the owners give them.)

I have kind of a bastardized system for reference really. For some reason, I refer to the AC4400CWs (GE's designation) as any of the following: C44AC-Ws, C44AC-CTEs, C45AC-CTEs (ES44ACs).

As far as the SD70s...yeah I'm backwards. I go with the EMD classification (SD70MAC) when in fact UP calls them just SD70Ms.

The SD70M is simply, the DC version of the SD70MAC.

Sorry is I'm upsetting you, but those are the facts.

Hmmmmm, I had a UP shop employee tell me that they were ordered as AC units upon the initial contract, however he may have just been blowing smoke up my ass.

Either way, that's what I was aware of. Not to say that I can't be wrong. ;P

Idlers. A good majority of the double-stacks rolling into the KC area yards have them, or something else to act as a buffer.
