  • The last shots of 2010..a fitting end to a great year..

    After sleeping in this morning a bit, I awoke to what appeared to be mostly sunny skies (and that was about 1130am..wasted half the day)...anyway, after a little while getting my head right after 12 hours sleep and listening to the radio, Carmon and Myself decided to head out. We just missed a 375 and 112 (it was to early in the afternoon for Westbounds anyway)

    After a quick diversion for a little shopping (and I still have not figured out how that happened ) We headed over to Waddy to shoot the Westbound 22A, which would be the last train to operate in daylight over the Louisville District. 22A had a SD70M-2 leading, which I though would be a good end to the year, but on the way back towards home, we swung by Lawrenceburg (KY) and found the T-19 local power tied down for the weekend..and it was another SD70M-2! We spent a few minutes shooting some detail shots of it before the clouds shut us down for the day.

    I am not a superstitious person, but maybe...just maybe, the fact the last thing I shot this year was EMD, means that 2011 will be a EMD kinda can only Hope.. Anyway..happy New Years to everyone..may all your signals be green and all your power not be made in Erie Smiley
