It's been months since I have been able to spend quality time trackside. So I spent Saturday at THAT spot....Rosenberg, Tx where i can catch UP, BNSF and KCS in one quiet spot. Found an Exec unit leading a WMAX rock load, a BNSF meet, and my favotites, Retro Belles among others. It was a good day.

Great Ken!

I'll been track side for the most part of 2013 - too bad it's been my work office window. UP switches around lunch time every day using the old MP caboose. Orange TX is about the only place I know that you can still see both a MP & SP caboose in action nearly daily. Too bad I can't share my photos that I take inside the plant!
