    Sunday with the 1943 and a couple other surprises

    Great shots, Brad! Stuck at work until noon today. Hoping she hasn't left North Platte by then but won't hold my breath.

    The delay coming up the Coffeyville Sub on Thursday wrecked havoc on my plans, so the day turned into a "see what you can find along the way." On The Road Again by Nathan Jurgensen Then the day it spent on display at Union Station. I waited for the crowds to die down Friday evening before...

    Can anyone recommend a book with really good railroad maps?

    http://www.openrailwaymap.org/ I've found this to be a good resource. I usually get lost tracing abandoned lines on it and before I know it an hour has gone by....

    Monthly Update: My April schedule is a bit crazy right now with 3/6 fellow meteorologists at my place of employment away from work for the next week or two, leaving only three of us to cover a 24-hour operation. Needless to say, I won't make it out too often through the end of the month. Just...

    Lincoln, NE area shots

    Some excitement in Lincoln's Hobson yard this morning. http://www.1011now.com/content/news/LFR-battles-early-morning-train-engine-fire-374361371.html My friend Curtis (works for a crew shuttle) shared a few shots with me (and gave me permission to share here). Typical GEVO toaster!

    Not fenced! I like that idea. Just a bit overgrown with vegetation, but I can handle it! I've gone back to posting all** of my photos on Flickr. *Deemed worthy Nathan Jurgensen It gives me a reason to get out with my camera. I love this hobby, particularly train and weather shots!

    Out and about in KCMO area

    Hey all. Figured I'd start consolidating my posts to weekly (maybe monthly) updates depending on how much I'm able to get out. Had a day off of work and it was a generally nice day so I headout out towards Lawrence to check out the "Kansas Curve" along UP's Kansas Sub. Lighting isn't...

    I unfortunately do not know anyone with a vintage car. I didn't even think about the radio antenna while shooting or post-processing but now I see why I should've excluded it. I also tried the B&W because I thought the big blue garbage dumpster next to the old depot as well as the church on the...

    What a wonderful day we had to end January. Decided to go for a walk before walk with camera in tow. Still needing to venture out to some other places and plan to do that when we see a warm day coincident with a day off from work... No Work at the Depot by Nathan Jurgensen I tinkered with...

    I stumbled upon that website shortly after moving here. It's a great source of info and I appreciate the work you put into it! Is that small bridge just off SW Boulevard still a good viewing spot for Sante Fe Junction?
