Friday Flashback - C&NW "Coal" GEs

The road trains C&NW would operate from Minneapolis and Chicago typically had SD40-2s for power but we did get larger EMD and GE models on a fairly regular basis. The one model we didn't see much of were the newer "coal" C44-9Ws (unless there was a coal train for MERC). I was excited on this day to find a pair of the great looking GEs moving M-ITPR south out of Superior. Needless-to-say I followed this guy south. Here they are passing classic EMD power at Parkland.
