I really enjoy the results of photographing in the rain. The light is different and changes constantly. It was pretty cold in the truck though. I was recording the sound of the wind and the rain and the trains hoping for some thunder. No thunder but lots of wind and rain. I had to turn the truck northwest to keep the rain out, But saw these CSX locos and some BNSF trains.

Passing shot of the westbound CSX that had to go slowly west because of a problem with the crossing signal at Beach Road and he had to wait for the northbound local to cross in front. And a big THANK YOU to Bob for fixing the multiple upload. Tom Z

Thought I better throw in some shots of the Kelloggs Local from this morning. Woke to a half inch of snow on everything. And course it rained before that, so there is ice under the snow. That's Nebraska!
