To celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Golden Spike, the Union Pacific Railroad restored on of their biggest locomotives, “Big Boy” 4014. During 2019, they have been touring as much of the UP system as possible. On November 17, I followed 4014 from Neodesha to Paola.
Right before Halloween, I wanted to head down to Uncle Warren’s pumpkin patch (AKA, the BNSF Southern Transcon) to catch some action. Let’s just say I was not disappointed.
With the new Truck Parking Information Management System system now in place at the rest areas along I-70 in Kansas, the KTA is now following suit at its service areas
Back in January, KDOT introduced a new system to inform drivers of the availability of Truck Parking at the Rest Areas along I-70. Yesterday, I finally got around to checking the new feature out.
I woke up on a Sunday Morning and got wind that BNSF was running eastbound trains through Lawrence on the Topeka Sub.
Usually, Labor Day weekend means that I’m out doing something train related. I decided this year to head out to Camden, Missouri on the Marcelline Sub.
I arrived a little before 10:00 and found that I wasn’t alone – there was another car, and two railfans wearing day-glo orange vests already there waiting on the (late, as is the norm) Amtrak 4. It didn’t take long for the action to kick up.
I’ve added my photos from March of 1996 to Flickr.
