    Great catch Rick. That is one really interesting locomotive. I'd love to see one in my neck of the woods.

    A few years ago I found a vintage Southern Railway signal bridge and signals standing on the mainline in Lowell, NC, but wasn't able to catch any trains passing beneath it. I stopped by today for the first time since and was thrilled that it's still in service. I had better luck with trains today.

    Glad you got those Sandpatch, a great pair of pictures. It won't be long until those signal old bridges are replaced with some look alike signal.

    NOT MY PHOTO PHOTOGRAPHER UNKNOWN

    OK, not a Train photo, but if you live in any of these states check out any location in your area and put in for the day off of work.

    The town that I live Dixon IL. in is on the main line and instead of going to one of the stop were you know is going to be jam pack, I'm going to a rural area crossing where the crowds should be much smaller.

    A fine idea -- I've used that plan of attack for many years and usually try to compound success by getting away from highway crossings of any kind. Few people want to walk to a location. I'd rather come away with one good shot than a dozen with nothing but rear ends and elbows.

    Please post your work if you get a chance to get trackside! I'm like Chuck with my envy. Being a Carolinian, the Big Boy is a loooong way away.
