Bad news for Amtrak travelers on the Southwest Chief means good news for railfans like me. Due to an incident that sidelines the initial locomotive consist, the train had to be towed back to Chicago, where they started it again, 12 hours late. Therefore, instead of going through Kansas overnight, the train would go through during midday. I also have a couple of photos of the new dog and a new interchange under construction on K-7 at Johnson Drive.
Two seperate photo batches here. First, the latest photos – The Kennedy Compound had a little accident in the laundry room which caused water to flow down to the basement, I took Depot Caretaker duty on Saturday’s Amtrak 4, and the Midland Railway ran their Labor Day run… oh yeah, some changes involving the new US 59.
And this batch of photos from December of 2002:
During the weekend, while over at the Shop (better known as Kennedy Glass) the BNSF sent some trains my way.
The new signs for US 24 and US 40 are now beginning to make their
appearance on I-70. I manged to get a few shots of the old signs in place
alongside their new counterpoints, PLUS the new END! of US 73 at the
Also:some shots of the new Lone Elm Road bridges, as well as new railroad
bridges and Clearview in Olathe
And, on a personal note, my cousins Carl, Sam, Bethany, and Cyrus:
I’ve added a new set of photos from this past week, including trains on christmas eve, my little cousins, and meeting up with friends at a local watering hole.
I took a roadtrip to check on the progress of the new US 69 freeway under
construction in Linn County. Nothing special, I took 69 down to the north
end of the existing southern freeway, then turned east on the back roads to
US 71, returning home via 71. On the way to 71, I found an old truss
In addition, I have updated the US 69 and US 71 exit guides to reflect what
is signed on the road and what is being built.
