  • Four in a row

    The BNSF Emporia Subdivision can be a busy place, but this afternoon At Ridgeton, I managed to catch four trains with only a few minutes between them.

    Saturday Morning at Wedel Acres

    This past weekend, after seeing pictures and discussion on Facebook about Wedel Acres in Peabody, I finally decided to check it out. Peabody is located just northeast of Newton in Marion County just off of US 50. It is also where the BNSF La Junta Sub crosses the UP [née Rock Island] Lost Springs Sub. A…
