A new view of an old train-watching site

Although “Outdoor recreational activity” was allowed here in Kansas under the state’s “Stay at Home” order, I didn’t really feel a reason to get out of the house until last Saturday, when I headed out to Pomona to check out an old spot that has changed quite a bit since the last time I was there.

Recently, BNSF replaced the truss bridges over the Marais des Cynges River between Pomona and Quenemo. The eastern bridge at MP 69 is right next to the Arkansas Terrace crossing.

An hour in the pumpkin patch

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.

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.

Exploring old highway 50

Back on July 9, one of my fellow road enthusiast friends came up to Kansas. While he was there, he wanted to do some “sightseeing.” Since I happened to have the day off from work, I was happy to oblige. 🙂
