Look for the "Some Old Slides Rerun" post. I reposted all the slides from the first post. If you can't find what you are looking for, narrow your query down and I'll see what I've got. I do not have any of CNW trains on the bridge at 60th and F however. Most are in 72nd and Pacific to 78th and Dodge area and along Keystone Drive.

Thanks I did see some pics from the 72nd and Pacific area, hoping there will be some posts of the CNW trains towards the bridge at 60th and F

I found myself in Shenandoah over the weekend and stumbled upon a few interesting artifacts. The boxcar was supposedly built in 1917.

Parts of the Posse went west this week to the Narrow Gauge. Here are a few from a 3 day trip. We went primarily to find some spots to record the sound of steam away from the highway. I hiked to a point just to the west of Windy Point. No easy task for an old geezer at 10,000 feet. Other locations were at Tanglefoot Curve and Sublette, NM. Great sound even with the wind rushing through the lonesome pines. I'll post some on Soundcloud sometime. And we got to see diesel #19 and a great restoration of the 168.

I saw the Rio Grande box car with a trailer next to it and thought it would make a great model railroad residence. And a cowboy on a cell phone. I know this is technically a western railroad but I might extend the posse's range this one time. If you haven't been there you need to go at least once. Hopefully brother Rick got a picture of me standing on the high perch above the valley.

Windy Point, near Cumbres Pass Colorado. The first picture is of windy point from the Hwy 17 crossing below.
The second picture is a "where's waldo" shot of Tom. The grassy part he is standing on is just to the left of the first pic. you can see a bit of the grassy part.
I now wish I had a shot from way back to show exactly how high(altitude wise) the old geezer was. I am unable to comment on his psychological condition.

A beautiful 63 degree November day here in the midwest. Once around the town and only things were the always pleasant southern belles. Nothing else new here.

Saw some really cool pictures of Big Boy in the snow down along the the Kansas Pacific line. Hays in particular. Mr Dickens and crew will be glad to get home.

It's gonna be 40 degrees today. Still 19 at the time these images were taken. Same UP coal train taken about an hour apart but only 10 miles apart. First one east of Kennard. Second one west of Arlington NE. Haven't had a good snow yet, but some nice icy conditions causing many car accidents. Those are the days I stay inside.

In the blink of an eye 57 years passes but the memories of F units at Ingalton stay. Ingalton on the Chicago Great Western north of West Chicago IL. Happy New year to all you train nuts, railfans, and historians.
