    Where did you catch that at? That is a rare find, especially from the Rock Island.

    A lot of my railfanning last year was of local U.P. coal trains in western Colorado.

    National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, WI back in October. They moved it out of the shed for some reason. I think to sell off a piece of passenger equipment. You can see the spot it usually is in under its nose.

    While in Ogden we checked out the museum's train displays.

    I didn't get a whole lot of railfanning in this year. But the time I did spend by the rails was good!

    From a recent trip to Roanoke VA...

    I am ashamed to say that I grew up in southeastern Ohio, and I had no clue something like this existed in West Virginia. This is an awesome scene...
