CP 490
Title:  CP 490

Tomah Sub 281
Title:  Tomah Sub 281
Description:  Another long venture for only one shot of 281. This time it was for a pair of SD45 bodies elephant style. With cloud cover the whole way down, the sun popped out here at Camp Douglas for about 10 minutes, just in time for the pair of EMD's to come thundering by in Notch 8 with the moon as the icing on the cake.

CP 283
Title:  CP 283
Description:  Finally able to cross this shot off my list. Every time I drove over this bridge it begged for a shot, so with it being summer and the sun swinging to the right angle, all I needed was good power. And I think I got it.

L&N on B48-01
Title:  L&N on B48-01
Description:  After talking to the dispatcher, the engineer throttles up past the Depot in "Downtown" Wells. Only four cars today, but it nearly got much worse. The conductor informed the dispatcher that the "empties" on the train were indeed loads, and that they might need to be setout. Luckily, the outcome was for them to continue East with them, or else this would have likely been my only shot.

CP 498
Title:  CP 498
Description:  With dynamics howling, two SD40-2's coax their 9000 plus ton train down the steep grade, nearing 7th St. I hadn't marked this shot off my "places to shoot" list before this, so I figured with power like this it would be the wise decision today.

Title:  1992?
Description:  Well, if it weren't for that CSX step sticker(which most of the time I love) you'd never be able to tell this was 2009, or even MNNR for that matter. Notice the powerline shadows in the smoke.
