Remarks: A NS eastbound intermodal eases through the doubletrack tunnel while a eastbound coal exits the single track tunnel at the east portals at Galitzin. Of course the coal will lose the race but they stay side by side throughout the clip.

Wow, I had no idea there was access to this location, very interesting and sceneric! The HERZOG train is not coal, it is ballast.

Nice video, Kent. Loved how the trains came to an end at the same time.

Herzog not only ballast but computerized at that. Doors open on cars by computer. Takes very few men to operate as opposed to old ballast trains.
