  1. UP 8159 SD9043MAC

    UP 8159 SD9043MAC

    Didn\'t think much of this scene at the time, still upset about missing out on the last days of patched Tunnel motors in mainline service a couple years earlier. Now the engines themselves are in storage and area railfans report the tower has been torn down. On the other hand the FrontRunner...
  2. Road sign

    Road sign

    This Road sign is before the RR Crossing. A little too late to tell a trucker if his trailer will hit the rails.
  3. Sign

    Sign

    This Sign sits inside a caboose in Flatonia Tx next to the tower. I was in question when I saw the sign. Does anyone know any information about it or where in Harlingen it was used at?

    West bound into the sunset

    UP 7857 is west bound into the sunset as it crosses the switches near the CEMEX plant in West Odessa.
  5. Structure will not clear man...

    Structure will not clear man...

    Closeup of "will not clear man" sign at Joplin Ave. entrance of static display in Joplin, Mo. Probably came from an old feed mill and grain elevator, location undetermined. That is where suc signs usually appeared.

    A sign naming the railroad location of Blossberg can be see appox. 1200' west of the Mullan Pass tunnel portal.

    A BNSF grain train races past a sign telling trains on an industrial spur to stop and wait 28 seconds for the crossing signals to activate.
  8. Two in one

    Two in one

    This is just plain weird. CN has patched its typical "No Treespassing" sign with a smaller version of its old self, and a different phone #. Why? Which is the right number...? Note that decalling for "Danger" on the top has been salvaged (likely for another sign) and that...
  9. Stay out!

    Stay out!

    CN sure doesn't like visitors in their yards. I've seen all these signs on CN property separately before, but there sure is strength in numbers. This isn't the main entrance either, just a dirt road in the middle of nowhere, on the city's outskirts leading to the shops (CN's private road runs...
  10. Conrail Lives On!!

    Conrail Lives On!!

    Take note of the new sign and truck. Yep, they're a bunch of rebels here in town.

  14. Remote control!

    Remote control!

    Not sure how a pink SD40-2F sumbolizes remote controlled units, but I must admit this is one cool sign! Sure beats the one they have in Winnipeg. Basically chalk on wood. Here's the other side of the crossing that the sign is on...
  15. RR Sign - UP Memphis Sub - M.J. Scanlon

    RR Sign - UP Memphis Sub - M.J. Scanlon

    Plain and simple for a crossing on this dirt road near Earle, Arkansas. A 4x4 post, stop sign, strip of reflective tape and a crossbuck to let you know to look both ways before proceeding.
  16. Sunsetting the X

    Sunsetting the X

    The railroad crossing sign in downtown Winlock stands guard of the local track while the sun peeks out of the clouds.
  17. DON'T   PARK   HERE

    DON'T PARK HERE

    This sign is in the window of a local Bail Bonding Company - Barb said someone always parked in here place till she put this sign in the window next to her parking space.

    NS 9238 - C40-9W - M.J. Scanlon

    Like the signs says, "Memphis is not the end of the Norfolk Southern system - It is the beginning - Safety first starts here". NS9238 is parked in front of the building displaying that sign in Forrest Yard on the East Spur.
  19. Not an entry; just for laughs

    Not an entry; just for laughs

    So the photo assignment topic is Crews, eh? Alright, here's the Santa Fe station sign at Crews, CO, south of Colorado Springs, where the double track joint line from Pueblo narrows to a single track to Palmer Lake. This is just for smerks; the photo is from 1989, which disqualifies it from the...
  20. CN/IC Johnston Yard - August 2003 - M.J. Scanlon

    CN/IC Johnston Yard - August 2003 - M.J. Scanlon
