Following BEK's lead ( Under the Weather
), I present a small selection of my favorite railroad and train photos from the past year.My son M (5 years old at the time) explores a rustic stretch of former Rock Island track in Lawton, Oklahoma. February 2007.
Copper Basin ore train near Ray, Arizona. March 2007. Grain harvest season in Altus, Oklahoma. Hollis & Eastern 8170 crosses the Farmrail diamond while a Farmrail crew spots cars at the grain elevator. June 2007.
BNSF 7627 leads a northbound vehicle train at Sandcut, California, on the UP Mojave Subdivision between Tehachapi and Bakersfield. October 2007.
Moonrise behind the signal bridge at Sandcut, California. October 2007. Adding to the thick smoke from the October wildfires, a BNSF Z-train climbs east toward Cajon Jct on Main 1 over Cajon Pass north of San Bernardino, CA. October 2007. My friend Stephen enjoys a close look at an empty grain train on the KCS south of Mena, Arkansas. October 2007. Fort Worth & Denver depot in Abilene, TX. December 2007. That "Q" logo seems a bit out of place in this part of west Texas! ... and one from closer to home: KCS 4020 leads southbound grain loads through Saginaw, TX. November, 2007.
Stay tuned; in a day or two I'll post a selection of my favorite non-railroad photos from 2007.
