    Roadtrip to Illinois 12/15 & 12/16/2017

    Having two consecutive days off from work, I decided to get out and get away from the usual railroading here in Kentucky (CSX and NS, and mostly widecab power belonging to them) this past weekend and travel to Illinois for a little variety. I was not disappointed. CN/IC 3106 South, Dongola...

    A couple rainy days on the CNO&TP.

On Tuesday I found out that NS 289 would be coming down the CNO&TP with an Illinois Central SD70 in the famed "Death Star" paint scheme leading. I waited for it at Burgin and got another shot of it and a few...

    Chasing 611, Roanoke,VA 5/27-5/29/2017

    Chased 611 over the weekend around Roanoke,VA. Shots aren't the best, with the weather not cooperating and me being fairly unfamiliar with the area. Crowds don't help matters either. IMG_4939 by Jeff Wagoner, on Flickr IMG_4966 by Jeff Wagoner, on Flickr NS 958, Montgomery, VA 5/28/2017 by...
