Been a long time since I've been out... caught this PPL job in nice A.M. sun today.
Yes, it was that foggy... haven't seen any GP50's since.
Instamatic treasure... the bridge and station are still there. Unfortunately the Geeps and classic Chrysler are not.
The copper has come down-or been stolen-as a forlorn H3W heads south to work Norry.
Geep gets dwarfed by the mill.
Switching the feed mill under intense blue sky.
Daily run bores out of the woods at a private crossing between Danville and Rupert.
Wide open down the racetrack, overtaking an Arrow set in the distance.
All I had then was a clapped-out Instamatic, but this is one of my favorite shots... wish I could go back.
With a dozen other railfans shooting the coming, as did I, here's my take on the going E's drifting through town.
Hurry up... zoomit! Had to zoom up to 300mm to catch blues in the sun charging toward a cloud.
Not usual to get 3 units... heading to Norry in nice evening light.
Coal swings out of curves east of town.
Solid TOFC eastbound... right where truck trailers belong!
Suprise! New PPLX hoppers came around the curve running reverse track almost before I could shoot.
