    I've never been able to figure that out either. Some years ago I was standing adjacent to a yard watching winos and derelicts stumble across the many tracks unmolested. You can guess the rest of the story. Soon thereafter, a railroad cop spies Sandpatch, standing in a safe spot with a Nikon and scanner, and asks me to leave. At least he was nice about it. Maybe he was in the mood for conversation with someone sober.

    I'm feeling bad, it's been a while since I posed any train pictures here. This is from a while ago, but I don't think I've shared it. Westbound NS auto-rack train coming off the Sandusky OH district onto the Fostoria district.

    Taken today in Columbia, SC, NS's Interstate Railroad Heritage Unit 8105 trails on Train 191. Man, it was HOT outside.

    Coincidental with nikonpup's sighting of an SD-40-2 was my sighting of one today as seen here. NS is rebuilding these I think; such a beautiful shine.

    I love old signals, so was happy to capture one with this local. The "fishtail" plate on the signal mast identifies it as a "Distant" signal and you can see its aspect show in the "Home" signal behind the train on the left.

    …. and one more. This of NS 192 leaving Columbia, SC headed north. With NS's Top21 operational changes, 192 has become an enormously long train. I'm surprised that it runs without helpers.

    Great captures Sandpatch, you had a very productive day track side.

    That SD40-2 shines like a new penny. Those may stay around due to some industrial tracks & branch lines not being able to take the weight of the larger locomotives.

    Thank you. The old signal shot was made possible by a locomotive failure which caused the train to stall on the grade. It created a mess for NS. Everything had to be backed downgrade across the river and returned to the yard. The SD-40-2 was brought out to either assist or replace the original unit.

    Yesterday's summer heat and humidity was almost too much. I finally poured my bottle of drinking water over my head and shirt. The cooling felt great!

    Took the long route to the grocery store today so that I could check things on NS. A red signal indicated a northbound was due, so I set up for a picture. That's an SD-60 rebuild leading.
