    It seemed like I didn't do a lot of railfanning but looking back now, seems i did get some neat stuff.
    This year saw me visit many states and get to rail fan in most.

    My favorite shot from the year has to be this BNSF train on Tehachapi Loop.

    I saw some neat shortline equipmet like this switcher at the airport in Mojave CA.

    And cool passenger equipment like this special paint job

    Then there was day out with Thomas at the TVRM in Chattanooga TN.

    There were some neat special loads along the rails too. Here's some type of boiler passing through Ft Worth TX

    There was lots of other stuff too but those are some pretty good highlights from the year. Don't worry though, with all that meat, I did manage to get my vegtables in durring all this. Here's a cabbage in Ft Worth TX

    Here's hoping everyone has a great year railfanning in 2010. Be safe and have fun.

    Kicking up a cloud of snow is so fine. :thumbs_up::thumbs_up:
    Looks so much more wholesome than the dirt and dust that get kicked up around here.
