Jack, I work for CSX running from Louisville, KY to Cincinnati, OH and usually see the Triple Crown train leaving Gest Street yard on it's run to Danville, KY and north to Ft.Wayne, Indiana. N.S. tended to use alot of high horsepower four axle locomotives such as GP-40's, GP-49's, GP-59's, GP-40X's, GP-50's, GP-60's, B36-7's, and D8-32B's. Recently anything from SD-60's to the D9-40C's can be seen. Hope this helps. Justin Dzan

These days NS uses 6 axle units to power the Triple Crown since the carload is now up to 150 cars.
