Here there be flairs. May 1, 2007. North west of Rosenberg.
Wow! Blombergs on that big loco!
It's been "swooshed" : http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=5213729
The prize that day in Attalla, AL was the 611, headed to Chattanooga that morning on the first NRHS trip of the season as sponsored by the Heart Of Dixie Chapter.
I think that vote would be unanimous!
A couple more flash backs to Tilford yard.
Fantastic photos sir! I remember the days of chasing NS steam excursions. The NS steam team always put on a good show.
MILW "Patrol" at Middletown, WI, April 1987. Did any road have cooler, more iconic switch stands than the Milwaukee?
I miss the telegraph wires. Fall of 2007.
February 1989, Meridian & Bigbee crossing the Tombigbee River at Naheloa, AL. This is one of those neat highway/rail lift bridges.
The M&B is now owned by Genessee & Wyoming and has expanded its operations, gaining trackage rights east into Montgomery, AL.
CP 7028(SD70ACU), CP 8106(AC44C6M) leads train 475 northbound through Camanche, IA on the Davenport Sub. Both units are rebuilds.

Nice old Geeps.
I like the interesting juxtaposition of the sign and the nearby bridge - "Weight Limit 5 Tons".
A random CSX SD40-2 rolling out into Tilford yard.
Last two from Tilford yard for now.
BNSF on the UP Sunset Route heading toward Houston. September 17, 2007. Just west of Sugar Land. A UP freight is passing it heading west while it is in the hole.
A turntable! A cool sight.
Interesting that it has not been "Banditized" by 1987. This is well more than a year after Soo Line ingested the Milw's remnants.
This was in the collection of the Railroad Museum of Oklahoma in Enid, December 6, 2007. A real yinyang.
Back in the late 1980's Georgia Power's Plant Scherer just north of Macon Georgia began burning powder river basin coal. Those trains are now BNSF/NS trains but for the first 20 years, they were UP/NS trains. Here we see one from the UP days rolling south through NS's Inman Yard in Atlanta in late 2003.
