    A radio control job throttles up working in downtown Minot. Yes, Spartan cab EMDs can lead technotoasters in 2020!

    Both the engineer and the conductor had to get off the BNSF local in Rosenberg to throw this bulky turnout on the interchange between between the UP and BNSF. March 21, 2012.

    "Meeting One at Baden"
    While an eastbound manifest freight's crew does a rollby inspection, a CP ribbon rail train eases into Baden siding, then will stop short to enter the house track. Before the train left Minot, the dispatcher told them they'd meet one at Baden, and would get a ride back to the city.

    What that van is missing is a 1970s psychedelic paint job and kitschy curtains over the big side windows...:p

    Looking out the back door. Vicksburg, Mississippi. March 2001. He is about to connect air and HEP after the locomotives are coupled onto the back end of the train in order to push it up on to a switchback half way up the bluff along the Mississippi River. Then the locomotives will pull the train backwards to the top.

    Me again working on the New Braunfels. I like to wear painter's pants for working because they are inexpensive, rugged, cool in the Texas heat and have tool pockets and a hammer loop. However they do get dirty. But who cares?

    "Winter Railroading Ain't for Sissies"

    A hardy crewman chisels ice out of a frozen switch in downtown Minot so his train can leave the storage yard and head west. The temp? -10°F with a real feel of about -35°F.[​IMG]

    When the going gets tough, call out for Hulcher and the big hook. [07/16/1976, Barrington, IL] That that C&NW Waycar took quite a bump. As I remember, no passenger train was involved. They brought in an E to help move cars about.

    Well, the sign planted just behind my old van does say "MEN AT WORK" but it appears the men are all way down the line shooting the bull instead of doing any work.
