My favorite 2009 train picture...
All kinds of neat photos opportunities. A lot of great views were shared here on TrainBoard! Keep 'em coming in 2010!
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.
Unpatched SP in Glenwood Springs
Pulling into the coal loader at Somerset, CO.
Coal train in Palisade, CO.
Return of a Grande unit to Grand Junction, CO
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.
As I headed over the contenintal divide I captured these.
I headed to Ogden, UT to see U.P. 844 for the first time.
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...
Some from my old hangout, Ashland VA.
My best trip of the year was to Harpers Ferry WV.
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...

I should've added this to my recent postings but I will consider this a BONUS --
