Nice job Brad! I'm going to KC in May to chase the 844, and the BNSF GP30s will be on my list of things to catch. Sometimes they run the train with freshly painted or ATSF painted SD40-2s, so it will be good with any of the power sets. What time did you see that train?

Wow!

Those cleaned up gp30s on that stacker are sure nice. Unique too.

I hope you slid over to Jack Stack. I just received a personal delivery of OK Joes last friday.

Yes! Jack's Stack at the Freight House! What a great restaurant. Watch the endless parade of trains and eat a delicious meal of barbeque/steak. I can't wait to go back there next month!

Super, Superb, Love the night shots. I don't have to go out ever again now. TZ
Thanks Tom! I need to do more night shots around here, but I never find the time.

Awesome shots! Were the BNSF GP30's rebuilt? I assume so?
I will need to look at the origional photos, but I think the stencil on them said GP29-2. I know it was a "9" and not a "0"

Very nice photos! Awesome catch on the UP 6361, from the cars behind it, it's one of the regular trains I normally see thru here
I talked to another railfan down there and he said he had seen it down there from time to time.

We were going to go to Oklahoma Joe's but they were closed on Sunday so we went to Jack Stack's in the Freight house. The other option was Gate's.

The 6361 apparently went thru during the night,as I've not seen it, hopefully I will catch it next time :)

Yeah. Lots of BBQ places are closed on sunday. OK Joes and LC's included. Only Gates, Jack Stack and Bryants are open Sunday.

Best time to go to Joes is during Lent, on a Friday. You can walk right in without standing outside.

If you haven't already, try to make it to the American Royal on Friday night at Kemper.

Wow, excellent shots Brad! Especially nice on the UP 6361. Maybe that's a secret Heritage unit? :)
I've made the trek to Kauffman Stadium my fair share of times for baseball and it always seems like once you get close to the river that you see railroad elevated causeways and flyovers everywhere. Can't imagine what those bills tallied up to. Thanks for sharing!

A great series all around, but those first three shots as well as the night work are simply amazing. They go beyond the realm of simply railroad photography. They are most definitely art. Well done!

Like everyone else said, excellent shots Brad. That Western Auto sign has been there for years. I've seen photos taken in the '60's and it was there then.

Nice shots Brad! That coal train with 6361, like Jeff said must've snuck through my area over night. Maybe I can catch it this weekend and get, shots that don't even compare to these!
