For my birthday weekend, between the dinner and the birthday cake, I took some time to do some train watching.
It’s been a while since I’ve shared a train watching story on here, so I figure it was time to do so.
My last trip train-watching was a productive afternoon on the first weekend of January. The only regret was the fact that I did not realize that KU had a game that afternoon (a home loss to Texas)
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.
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.
Okay, it’s been a while, but I have taken a few trips railfanning lately.
In the latest “Road Video” Installment, we travel along Interstate 35 between BETO Junction and US 59 in Ottawa
I’ve added some photos from a little train-watching trip near Quenemo.
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.
Here are more trackside and roadside photos from the past week.
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. 🙂
