Wow, nice pics. I can't believe that unit fit under the wires. The base plate on either end must have pivot points to allow both cars to move around a curve. Just the trucks pivoting wouldn't be enough since that load spans two superflats.

What was the speed of the move? I'm assuming a crawl.

Great pics. Thanks for sharing.
Tonight's forecast - dark. Followed by scattered light in the morning.

Neat pics! I like how the flats aren't coupled together - looks like something from a model train set!

Thanks guys, I really appreciate the kind words. Sorry about the very late response too- I don't get any updates on new posts for the forums I'm subscribed to anymore. Not sure why that is...
Anyway, GSC mentioned speed. I don't want to say exactly how fast they were going but it's a decent clip until CP Trent, where speed is reduced.

Here's a video of it. The heat exchanger move starts at time: 02:01

There has been at least 2 or 3 heat exchanger moves since this one.
The latest was last Sunday, 9/1/2013

-Today (5/14), saw what was supposedly the final Air Products "High & Wide" move down the Trenton Line. Other than being the last, what made today's move extra special was the NS Virginian Heritage Unit in the lead.

-Here we see NS X999 approaching West Trenton:

Why is it expected to be the last move? Is the manufacturer relocating?
