    Thanks! I am going to re-scan it. Since doing this one, I've acquired a better machine. Hoping for a better quality view.

    Lowell, NC on the NS main, 06/11/2019. Lowell features one of the very few original SOU signal bridges with vintage signals still standing. It's a great spot. I hope to go there again sometime this spring.

    And in June 2018, the old GN yard in Minot had 2 V-trains, one with UP leaders.

    A bit of side-swipe damage. Sitting at Argo Yard in Seattle back around 2010:

    Probably 2008? I can't remember, but it's East Portal, CO, and those searchlight signals are long gone now.

    UP 9000 is part of a mid train helper set on a load of powder river coal headed southbound on the NS at Chattanooga's DeButts Yard in the fall of 1990.

    This was just outside Kansas City. Not sure on the exact location but I seem to remember it was some sort of scrap yard near Argentine Yard. Summer 1991

    Big blows still existed outside of museums in the 1990s? Were any of these saved?
