Where there are snow and trains

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a train watching story on here, so I figure it was time to do so.

My last trip train-watching was a productive afternoon on the first weekend of January. The only regret was the fact that I did not realize that KU had a game that afternoon (a home loss to Texas)
