Hauling coal empties from Indianapolis to the newly opened Bear Run Mine, Dugger, Indiana, a pair of 4300hp EMD SD9043-MAC's head across the Tulip Trestle, west of Solsberry, Indiana. Completed in 1906 and 157 ft (48m) high, the Tulip Trestle or Greene County Viaduct as it is formally known, is at 2,295ft (700m), the longest trestle viaduct in the USA and the third longest in the world. Formerly owned by the Illinois Central Railroad, it is now in the custodianship of the Indiana Rail Road and bears the burden of 12,000 ton coal trains on a daily basis.
