Hot week last week. CGW10c and I decided to head for Louisville, Ashland and beyond to see what was happening. We got out of the car at Louisville to photograph an NS freight and all the lens' fogged right away. I guess we will drive with the windows down for a while. We went to Ashland and the NS train was waiting for us there.
One eastbound coal surprised me and I got a bad photo of the DPU. Then it was the 7576's turn to go. 1st 3 photos are at east wye Ashland.

Booked it down hwy 6 to see if anything else was coming, nope. Lincoln had some power sitting around. #4 is ex ATSF 2857 at Lincoln.

Eastern Nebraska last week Part 2.

Part 2
5. Some power at the Lincoln shops
6. Taken from under the 27th street bridge. This should have been #8
7. Lincoln Roundhouse
8. Along side BN 2809 on the parallel road that I don't know the name of.

I tried some pacing shots from the passenger side of the car. Light was all wrong. There were 2 ATSF engines at 56th street, all on the wrong side. Stopped for Ice Cream, turned on the A/C and went home.

Ahhhh! The order got screwed up again. OK, I must go out more often. I am out of practice.

You are correct Bill! In fact I will talk to my employer in the morning and tell him that I don't have enough time off. And then I will hire someone to tell my wife that I need more railfan time. I'll let you know how that goes.
