Parked for the weekend, This time out side the shed.
About to Cross the BNSF mains after passing thru the bluff to get Mississippi River bridge.
Topping the hill that one time had the siding called Marsh, Now just one more hill to pull the train over.
Rolling down hill.
Passing Medill,MO Signal City till the signal gang gets there!
New model GE, A ES 44 AC with A1A trucks not that you can see them in my shot.
Yea the Super elevation is that much, Only on the ATSF main.
Rolling across the Cedar River bridge that need Paint bad.
Working with just a few rays of sun light, I get one spot that lights the nose.
Swinging around a curve and over a hill too.
Last of the light makes for some nice highlights
Night on the Spine line
Pulling them over one more hill
About one mile into Iowa, the Austin to Mason City job just made their pickup at the Ethanol plant.
I like this spot and it's only 30 miles drive.
