Remarks: If ever I was close to converting to a diesel fan, this was the day. Four diesels at max power along with no less then 6 helpers and if I recall, at least another 4 on the end. One of the most impressive sites and sounds I've ever been witness to. I was half tempted to check honorary "Steam" in the category box. This was taken in my pre-hard core railfan days - wish I had more to share.

The MK5000C's sounded great! I wish they wouldn't have all broke. Their long hoods were replaced with SD50's but the catepillar sound is now gone. Still a great looking engine though.

The MK5000 is a great looking locomotive. Thanks for posting the video.

Neat seeing an MK50. Looks like cross between a GE and EMD.

The one engine on point looks like a Ex AMTRAK
