Didn't miss this one. Coming out of Putvin's heard the horn, and made a dash east on US2. Got there in the nick of time to see a fur'ner dragging. CSX729 was in the lead and hardly working. Lots of HLMX orange two bay hoppers close to the head end, and lots of old Chicago North Western three bays. A Union Pacific 7872 was distributed power sounding like it was doing most of the work. Had to be pushing cause only three empty bulk head flats, a box, and a small tank car. Starting to snow half way home.
