LXVR 2880
Title:  LXVR 2880
Description:  The 80 shoves her cut of 4 to the KCS at C&G Junction (MP. 14.5) before continuing west to Artesia down the KCS. The KCS Tuscaloosa Sub is the line you see to your immediate left. The building you see off in the distance is the old Seminole Clothing Company. I wouldn't doubt that at one time that they weren't a customer of the lines original owner, the M&O or GM&O. This line from MP. 17 onwards to Tuscaloosa and Brookwood, Alabama is leased to and operated by Watco's Alabama.

Title:  Ever Have The Feeling You Are Being Watched?
Description:  As I'm getting ready to get my pics of the 2880 heading to Artesia, KCS personel drove by and strained their necks then turned around to do it again. Suprisingly I wasn't run off. Artesia was once railfan friendly but after KCS came to town that pretty much came to an end.
