    Here is a share. I was out & about Tuesday in search of trains to feed to my camera. Found this southbound BNSF train crossing SR4 heading towards Attica Jct Ohio where the NS tracks cross the CSX.



    The signals in the distance is Attica JCT.


    OK now my photography tip for the day. Wait for the end of the train there may be something interesting on the end. I figured this train just had a FRED on the end so after I shot the engines I jumped in my car & headed out. As I drove north I passed a pusher engine bringing up the rear DOH! Pusher are rare to nonexistent in these parts & I missed it.

    Went out yesterday to see what I could find on NS's "Loops" east of Asheville, unaware that a mudslide had shut down the railroad for the day. I packed it in late in the afternoon and drove to the bottom of the grade at Old Fort to look around and found evidence of trouble. I saw a damaged lead unit being serviced, then headed up the grade and found a four unit set had arrived from Asheville to assist the stranded train down to Old Fort.

    Here's the 7257 with mud on her pilot and hoses sheared off:

    One of the units in the set brought in from Asheville was the SOU Heritage Unit! I'd not seen this one before. I had to shoot it through the trees with diminishing light, but I was happy to get any kind of shot of her.

    The good news is that nothing derailed and there were no injuries.

    Lucky for them they didn't end up on the ground or worse. Must have been a code brown moment. Great captures Sandpatch.

    Two tunnels that would make good compositions next time, west portals at Ridgecrest and High Ridge. That's abandoned US-70 above the portal of High Ridge tunnel in the lower photo. It's been made into a great hiking and cycling trail.

    Yes it was good light & I even managed to have it on the correct side of the train. Imagine that!

    Those tunnels look very good. Not many of those in my neck of the woods.
