Went out light power, picked up train in  Booneville, Ia, Will be coming east sometime this weekend. I no nothing about these engines except they Chinese made and have 10 drivers.

Just a heads-up th everyone that the IAIS' QJ's have both been fired up and have made at least one test run yesterday. Nobody's quite sure what they're up to yet, but it's likely that they'll be staying in Iowa, possibly to meet up with 844 that's in the same general area.
