    BNSF Southern Transcon Visit

    The Missouri segment of the Transon is so cool! The ATSF signal bridges are still standing (not for long) and there are many nice angles. The bridge at Bayport Road is really cool. It's a shame they are taking it down.

    Kansas City Southern through Central Missouri

    The KCS sees two intermodal trains each way per day, the IVNKC and IKCVN "Schneider Flyer" trains. In addition, they also run MVNKC and MKCVN trains a couple of times per week each. The NS St. Louis District sees around 10 trains on average through Mexico.

    Two Months of Photos

    Thanks for the kind words guys! NS 5406 is still kicking in CR blue. In fact, I just saw a bunch of photos of it leading a train in Altoona over the weekend. One of the other three CR blue units has been repainted in the last three months, so it is only a matter of time before 5406 has the same...

    Two Months of Photos

    I have been busy and haven't had a lot of time as of late to upload, so now that I have some free time I will just share all of my recent stuff at once. The first is from early December when one of only 4 Conrail painted SD50s made its way to St. Louis. I caught it on St. Louis-Wentzville, MO...

    My Shadow Was 50 Feet Long

    Recent Stuff

    Next is a morning chase of the Penn Central heritage unit on grain train 54A. The lead unit, NS 8000, is the class unit for NS' ES44ACs, and I caught it back in September trailing the Wabash heritage unit (odd how that works out). Strangely enough, the train hit a semi truck in Mt. Carmel, IL...
