Here are two pics from July 18, 2013.  GE ES40CW #9924 is shown heading northbound, toward the left-hand curve at Parkers Lake, KY.  This image illustrates the rugged beauty of central Kentucky.  The second photo includes a Dash 9-40 NS#9159 leading a freight as it comes around the curve at Kings Mountain, KY.  An over-sized transformer is right behind the power on this southbound run.
