My video of Union Pacific 844 at The Lawrence depot on a rainy Saturday, October 13.
Saturday morning, I woke up early to open the Lawrence Depot and Greet the eastbound Southwest Chief, as I have occasionally done as a volunteer. It was the first time since the new signs were installed and turned on that I had done so. After the train left and the lights were turned off, I headed to Pomona, on the BNSF line in Franklin County. At that location, I saw a whopping 10 trains in all, including 8 trains during the 8 O’clock hour.
I did not get a good pic of two of the trains, but I was able to snag shots of the other 8, plus Saturday’s Chief at Lawrence.
Last Saturday, I had a small group of fellow road enthusiests in Lawrence for a “roadgeek meet.” Basically, we all get together and had lunch, then toured the area roads. For this meet, I chose K-10, US 59, and the new Kansas Turnpike Bridge. I don’t have any pics from the latter. During our outing, I spotted a gaffe on US 59. I did not get a picture during the meet; however, I was able to return to get a picture on Monday.
After the last week in January/First week in February, I was mostly working my day job and on the local Train show, so I didn’t go out that much.
I did, however, get a whole lot of photos at the train show. Photos from that can be found here (as there are too many pictures to post at once…
During the weekend, while over at the Shop (better known as Kennedy Glass) the BNSF sent some trains my way.
Last weekend was the Free State High School class of 2000 reunion. Since I was a friend to quite a few in the class, I was welcomed to “crash” the party.
I typically post the entire set from reunions, therefore, I won’t show the thumbnails in the blog post. Here, however, are the links to the individual photo pages. There are 30 photos to a page, and most of the photos are what the camera took, with no retouching. I may edit out some pictures later.
