    Default 30 degrees at Oreopolis, 11/22/2017

    Some fun numbers for Bill. A NB UP Train and some EB and WB BNSF trains. Form A's and Form B's abound on the Creston sub today. Probably pre holiday work. 4 or 5 westbounds piled up. I didn't wait for the whole parade.

    There was a NB UP train, Nebraska City OPPD coal empty, after the EB. 2nd DPU was the 6767. But I wasn't fast enough for a pic.

    Yesterday I went to the Desoto wildlife refuge near Missouri Valley. Too windy for most birds, but lots of trains. I had the 600mm on the camera, the train was coming, I jumped out of the car on a dirt road next to the river and just wasn't far enough away from the bridge to get the whole bridge in the shot. Cold and windy and time to go to work.

    You sound like me. My photos of trains at MP 17 are taken while I am at the Edmonds marsh photographing wildlife.

    According to today's newspaper, it is closer to -30 degrees for the time being.

    It's 9 right now. Still about 20 degrees warmer than New Years Eve. Here is a picture of the local that delivers my company's cars. Usually they don't park here, they just set out and go.
