Rolling up the siding
Title:  Rolling up the siding
Description:  The northbound empty train rolls up the siding. In the distance, we can see the loaded train holding short of the Main St crossing. It will pull down as the empty pulls up. KCS is pretty good about not blocking crossings in town when they have a meet. I have occasionally been startled to see a train sitting just south of Lake Frances Rd in Siloam, waiting for a southbound to get into town.

Taking the siding
Title:  Taking the siding
Description:  I started out this day on an errand. As I completed that task, I heard a horn, which turned out to be a northbound empty TXUX train. I was not able to get it in Siloam, but I did get to Gentry in time to set up on the Ark 12 overpass just in time to catch it approaching the south end of the siding there.
