    Thanks. I'd have never figured that out. I've only succeeded with one of these contests. "Located east of the Mississippi River" or such doesn't provide much to go on. :) You guys do an amazing job narrowing things down.

    I'm absolutely sure I've seen this before in search of other locations, but now I can't find it.

    I think we need another hint.

    Not in Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona. It's heritage would make this part of the BNSF historic family.

    I don't know, if I'm the only one participating in this contest, but I got it - FINALLY - It's the Cascade & Columbia River RR in Omak WA.
    It's a Genesee & Wyoming operated RR.

    For a very long time I roamed around in the Dakotas, Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa, Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas, as I didn't remember that a short while ago I went through all the Genesee & Wyoming lines.:rolleyes:
