Well it's been some time since I posted here and I'm not proud of it either... :mad: So, the other day, a co-worker, (who could tell you just about anything about the SP & UP on the west cost) mentioned the UP844 was coming to town. I thought are you kidding, Phoenix? Well, not only Phoenix, but even my little corner of the world even, but I digress. Anyway, not only did the 844 make me a happy guy, but the addition of UP1997 on the rear! :eek:
Never in my wildest, would I have ever thought that these 2 locomotives come out my way, but...

So, for a comeback after all this time, I think I got pretty lucky!

Thanks Mark. I never really left, but with work and other things so busy, I just hadn't been reading and doing much here on the forums. After hearing about the 844 and then getting the 1997 surprise, I just had to get back on the stick! :)
