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.
July 2022 in Pictures
I had one train-watching jaunt this month, plus a few Amtrak and BNSF grabs from the Santa Fe Station platform.
It’s my party, I’ll shoot as many trains as I want to
For my birthday weekend, between the dinner and the birthday cake, I took some time to do some train watching.
Saw a train… just not the one I expected
This morning, I checked the Amtrak status map and noticed that the Southwest Chief was running quite late and would be in Topeka around 8:40. Based on that, I decided to try and catch the train before I went in to work (I currently work in Topeka) I made it to a good spot along […]

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 […]
