Back to my favorite spot, a relaxing day with clear skies and temps in the mid 70s. First up is a SB Citirail (my 1st) leading a pseudo-Warbonnet with a string of tankers.

Next a few more southbounders, heading towards Houston/Galveston. All of these are taken from one of 2 overpasses between Brenham and Somerville, Tx.

A few others came thru; it isn't the busiest spot on Earth but the scenery is what I'm there for almost as much as the trains. This was the last one of the day, a NB with all standard cabs. While the 1st may be more appealing to railfans, in a few months its lack of air conditioning is going to make it something other than leader....but today it is just fine.

Yes, i like the higher vantage point. The cut adds a good framing element and the track:sun angles work quite well all day long. The 2nd bridge has very little car traffic so i literally plant a lawn chain on the bridge to wait!
