Went down to the Ship Channel to do some long exposures of the San Jacinto Monument and th Fred Hartmann bridge. During the night I saw this pair of RP20s tied down in Seabrook.

Awesome photos. Are you on the groups Railspot or Railroad Enthusiast on Facebook? There are a lot of photos and movement information on there. I'm in the Beaumont/ Port Arthur/ Orange area.

Been back in Texas on break. Head back to Ruston this coming week. Here are a few snapshots from the break. A couple highlights, the third train has an Arrowedge on the lead double stack. Itsed65 has shown that piece of gear out west several times, but it was the first time I've seen it here on the Glidden sub. The last photo is a fine example of why I always keep an eye on the skies when chasing a train. I was setting up to try a new angle on the BNSF sub, when I saw that guy working the field on the side of the road I turned off on. Had my own private airshow for about 15min.

I was browsing through some past airshow shots when I found these. They're a couple of shots from Fort Worth in October when I attended the Fort Worth Alliance airshow. Near the Alliance airport is a car factory served by rail. As the USAF heritage flight was taxiing down the runway I framed a GP40 switching a cut of autoracks with an F-16 and a P-51.

Not meant as a criticism but that is an SD, not a Geep.

Scattered shots from around the Houston area in the last couple weeks. Rental 4-axle power on a daylight run to Eagle Lake, Galveston Railroad power, PTRA units switching the Port of Houston, and a Canadian National unit train in the Englewood Yard.
