    It is amazing what a zoom can do to amplify those dips!

    I do enjoy hearing them all, especially when I am in a cut. Mmmm!!!!

    Today we get rain, and I had a bit of time to catch two, in the rain! Here's a gravel train eastbound,

    Wow, a couple Union Pacific and Clinchfield in there!(y)

    Those brown hoppers with the end "porches" are interesting.....:cautious:

    I get those Clinchfield cars in Minot all the time at a local aggregate dealer. That old Tunnel Motor is far from home, shoving these cars, spotting for unloading.

    And the funniest unusual move, a set of three CN units being run light. They stopped at the mainline service stand and got fueled, I suppose. I later heard and saw them eastbound out of town, with no train. Not the usual operation for this outfit,

    I'd forgotten about those old Clinchfield hoppers. They're still hanging around! Nice....

    Had to go to Water Treatment school Mon-Tue to maintain my certification. That was in Miles City, so I hoped to see some trains! Saw one on Moinday evening, heard one on Monday and heard two today. Super slow traffic. In fact, there is a stack train full of empty containers in the yard here, and one on Terry East siding with no power on them. The one in our yard is over 96 hours now! Weird.

    Anyway, this westbound grain off the Hettinger line is just about to get to Terry. It crosses over the NP mainline before it swings the curve.

    Maybe. Or power. No extra units sitting around here lately either.

    That's just a beautiful back-lit video, makes me daydream that the Milwaukee Road is alive and well, and those are orange/black GE's heading to Tacoma!:rolleyes::love:

    That CN power might be picking up a train. Oil or grain is my guess. It happens here a lot--a train will head west or east out of town and return light. A day or so later, they'll head out light and bring back a train.

    Had an interesting coal train yesterday with some MOW getting permission to follow it. Just listen to the radio chatter in the video,

    Eastbound for Beach and Dickinson, ND. The 'local' for grain with a pair of 40's! And they sound good!

    Thanks! Now if I can only catch a couple of U-boats or -7's pulling hard.....I always enjoyed their grunty growl as they pulled hard! But didn't have video capabilities than.

    That would for sure be cool. Makes me want to go dig out some of my VHS stuff from the late 80's and early 90's :D

    Oh, do they! :)

    The turbocharger makes more noise sometimes than the 645 it's blowing into. Sounds like a jet on the taxi lanes. There's an SD40-2 yard goat in Belen NM yard that really sounds more at home at the airport than the yard.:LOL:

    A few weeks ago, when I was getting gassed up, a happy moment!

    One video for the week, just a slow moving mixed freight, has some interesting cars, even a CSX heavy flat and a low-boy flat, among many others,
