US 59 Ribbon Cutting

Technically, this is old news, but I’ll go ahead and post it anyway. Back on September 18, Public officials had a ceremonial ribbon cutting for the new US 59 freeway at Baldwin Junction. Here are my photos:

November already?

For being without a day job, it seems I’ve been rather busy….

October brought a pair of “Special” Amtrak trains, and a new interchange on K-7 in Johnson County.

8 Trains in one hour

Saturday morning, I woke up early to open the Lawrence Depot and Greet the eastbound Southwest Chief, as I have occasionally done as a volunteer. It was the first time since the new signs were installed and turned on that I had done so. After the train left and the lights were turned off, I headed to Pomona, on the BNSF line in Franklin County. At that location, I saw a whopping 10 trains in all, including 8 trains during the 8 O’clock hour.

Roadgeek Meet Photos (+ a bonus)

Last Saturday, I had a small group of fellow road enthusiests in Lawrence for a “roadgeek meet.” Basically, we all get together and had lunch, then toured the area roads. For this meet, I chose K-10, US 59, and the new Kansas Turnpike Bridge. I don’t have any pics from the latter. During our outing, I spotted a gaffe on US 59. I did not get a picture during the meet; however, I was able to return to get a picture on Monday.

The Rest of February

After the last week in January/First week in February, I was mostly working my day job and on the local Train show, so I didn’t go out that much.

January 5, 2002

I have (slowly) been working on uploading my pictures from the archives… I’m now up to January 2002. This set of spirit squad photos was taken January 5th, at the first KU Women’s game of the (calendar) year.

During the weekend, while over at the Shop (better known as Kennedy Glass) the BNSF sent some trains my way.
