UP 6647 Northbound at Tower 55

UP 6647 C44ACCTE approaches Tower 55 heading north with a load of hopper cars.
We haven't seen any Tower 55 photos for quite a while. I thought that security was tight in that area.
I've been there several times since the beginning of the year and have not seen any security-types, although I have met several fellow railfans. On the other hand, I have been asked what I was doing by several railroad people while shooting at UP's Davidson Yard and BNSF's Saginaw Yard. I am always careful to stay on the public right-of-way at those locations.
