Out & About – July 10, 2011

September 6, 2011

Today’s tally was two UP trains, neither of which had any Union Pacific locomotives in the motive power consists. First up was a short ZLCAT with two CSXT motors.  I set up at the Willowbend crossing, thinking that the train would arrive before the clouds. This is what I get for thinking:

Normally, when I’d get hosed by the clouds like this, I would just pack it up and hope for better luck next time. But I figured since I’ve already burned the gas to get here, I might as well take a picture. I know, weak light like this just doesn’t cut it, but what can you really do?

Next up was a westbound pipe train with NS and CSXT power. The best light would be just west of the Imperial Sugar building at MP 25 of the Glidden sub, so a 10 mile jaunt was called for. Fortunately, the clouds cooperated.
