I don't know what these boxes are for; the one on the left side looks like it might have a camera mounted on it.

Walked up on this today while getting back into the cab.

I got a hoe and carried it off and put it into some brush; never struck at me and only rattled once. Almost 3' long.


Power on an eastbound loaded unit train going through Stratton, Nebraska; not sure if it was carrying ethanol or oil. A couple of hours earlier another eastbound loaded unit train went through with a single Dash 9 on the point with a pair of SD70ACe's nose to nose on the rear.


Caught a pair of former AT&SF Dash-9s going through Max, Nebraska is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
