CSXT 5252, Riverbend, Night Railfan

Nick O'Dell
A CSX ED44DC (GEVO) flies through Riverbend on a short EB Coal drag. The GEVO is one of the worst locomotives for pulling long, heavy coal drags, as they weren't designed for that kind of thing. The are under DC Traction and can't handle the heavy loads. The horn is even worse. Standard at a K5HL, with 4 bells reversed for FRA regulations, this cross breed between an American and Canadian tuned horn make other railfans and I want to puke. But, none the less, enjoy. The clicking noise, is because of the crossing flasher box, which I sat the camera on.
