Looks good, Gary. That long UP train with the Case combines rolled by me near Creston and then got held at DeKalb for hours for a re-crew. I also saw that westbound BNSF stacker with the DPU. Don't see that often on the Aurora sub. And I see that you climbed Mt. Steward again. Let's see how much more height you get after this week's snow. Good shot of the eastbound Amtrak with 2002 leading.

Thank you Bill, That UP train surprised me when I herd the detector say 809 axles WOW. This has been happening almost every day on this BNSF stack train running with a DPU. I hear you there about the snow. Yea you don't want to be out in that weather your video cameras might blow with the 50 MPH winds we are going to get. Yes that was a great catch I saw your video that was great stuff. I missed #5 because I thought it would come after dark but I blew that one I was in the shop at the park and saw the gates go down and there was #5 the first words out of my mouth Oh s#$t.
Great Work Gary! Amtrak with the 2002 is cool.

I caught the combine train in council Bluffs on Saturday Morning.
Thank you Brad, 2002 awesome unit to lead better than #5 Plain SD 70. That combine was a big train.
Good shots Gary. I saw the 720 just last week here in SE Texas.
Thank you Mark, These units get around.
