It has been a little while since I posted here, but with the new year I am planing to be around this forum a little more. So to kick it off here are my ten favorites from 2010.

1) A westbound manifest train following the Columbia River.

2) Two CSX units pull hard on the front of a loaded coal train as just after crossing the border from TN into NC.

3) Last light reflects off of the sides of an empty coal train returning to the powder river basin for more coal.

4) A trash train heads west through the Columbia River Gorge.

5) A CSX pusher is hard at work on a steep grade as it passes a church high in the mountains of NC.

6) The Georgia Local rumbles south towards Dalton with a string of manifest cars.

7) An empty coal train heads into the WY sunset.

8) A warbonnet leads a westbound manifest train out of Cooks siding in the Columbia River Gorge.

9) A southbound loaded coal train finally reaches straight track after descending "The Loops" near Spruce Pine, NC.

10) Discarded spikes and rail lie idle as a DPU on the back of a loaded coal train is in full dynamic braking on this 1.2% grade.


Don't be Ignorant
Nice to see you posting here again Marlin! You have been missed. Nice selection of photos for 2010. Guess I should be thinking of doing the same.

But where are your Nashville and Eastern photos? I hear they are still all GE with some C30-7's, ex-LMX's and former BNSF B40-8W's on their roster now.
