    I love the challenge and it truly is a challenge for two reasons:
    1) What would make a siding unique?
    2) Where do I find one?
    3) Can I get there and how?

    If it was, it'll probably fail you when you need to use it, and if you drop it you won't be able to pick it up without help...

    Besides, the obligatory tassles get in the way of the lens in breezy situations! :D

    Here's the switcher at Padnos Iron & Steel in Holland Michigan. The car behind the engine is on the scale track, where individual cars are weighed. Since it's Sunday, nothing is moving, but tomorrow, the CSX local, Y121, will drop by late in the day to pick up and drop off more gondolas.

    Spur of the Moment

    This picture was taken on impulse as Rrrr and I were walking to get the bus. I heard the train coming, whipped up my camera and snapped.

    It was 100 percent unplanned.

    This is the siding for the NALCO company. They make oil field lubricants and water treatment and process improvement services for various industries. The old abandoned Imperial Sugar refinery is in the background.

    Cold siding on a hot day

    This is a siding serving the cold storage facilities in Rochelle IL. What's unique about this is the fact that both UP and BNSF serve these facilities. It's pretty amazing all the sidings in this small area to these facilities.
