Hot Metal Bottle Train in Transit
Title:  Hot Metal Bottle Train in Transit
Description:  Headed up by one of the GP38-2 units on hand, this regularly scheduled hot metal bottle train ambles slowly from the ArcelorMital plant in East Chicago, IN, to the finishing plant in Riverdale, IL, via mostly IHB trackage. The cars' rotund shape makes it an easy one to spot coming down the track.

Title:  PRR 9771, EF-15A, 1963
Description:  24th Street. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on 11 October 1963. Shown here (L to R) are PRR engines #9771, #9687, and #7262. All were built by EMD. #9771 is an EF-15A built in 1951 and rated at 1,500 horsepower. #9687 is an EH-15 built in 1949 and rated at 1,500 horsepower. #7262 is an EFS-17M built in 1959 and rated at 1,750 horsepower. They are about to pass under the 24th Street Bridge with a 103-car mixed-cargo freight train on their way up the Allegheny Mountains via the Horseshoe Curve to Gallitzin and points West. Partially visible on the left is SLOPE Tower.

RUT 611 (Finally!)
Title:  RUT 611 (Finally!)
Description:  The RUT 611 is one of Utah Railways true "road trains" which almost always uses six axle power as it travels from Provo to Ogden. Most of Utah Railways six axle power is still painted in their classic paint scheme, so it has been a goal of mine to catch this train in motion. Finally today my luck came together and I got to catch the 611 with a SD50 on the lead as it powered through Salt Lake City on the old Rio Grande main!

Disko Then and Now
Title:  Disko Then and Now
Description:  The top photo was taken by Sandy Goodrick in 1951 on the CR400S bridge that used to pass over the tracks. There used to be a jog in the road, where it now is CR 1550 E. A road bridge came across perpendicularly to the tracks, rather than an angled bridge, which would be required now. The bridge was removed in 1984 after the tracks were removed, the ROW was filled in, and the road was straightened. On the bottom is the exact same location on October 20, 2015, believe it or not.
