Had to make a trip to Salina Ks this morning to grab some items, and of course a drive by the tracks was on the agenda! First 8 shots were taken in town.

Last photo was taken on my way home, I saw a headlight coming westbound, so I stopped at New Cambria Ks, and caught a rare (nowadays for this area) westbound empty coal train CACWE , with UP 6871 as the only unit.

Salina was always a stop for me as I headed for Great Bend. In those days there were ATSF F units and usually some Missouri Pacific locos. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
