Friday morning warbonnet

During Stephen's visit a few weeks ago, we headed up to Avondale to catch a Barstow-Alliance freight with a warbonnet GP60M on the point. She still looked good, even at the ripe old age of eighteen. The train sat at Avondale for a while to meet a pair of westbound Z's and let a coal load past, and then finally headed for Alliance, with the dreaded "high sun" rapidly approaching...

Still lookin' good at eighteen... BNSF 156 at Avondale on May 9.

H BARALT passes Hicks Airport

Stephen "takes the safe course" on US 287...

A coal load parallels the runway at Hicks

After catching the Fort Worth Cats baseball game on Mothers' Day (see May 14 entry) we headed to the Trinity River bridges nearby to catch a few trains. During an hour at the tracks, we managed to sabotage numerous fire ant mounds, lose my cell phone, and catch several trains including this southbound:

BNSF 7562 crosses the Trinity River on May 11.
Check back soon for more, including a report of a 24-hour foamer-thon in Saginaw during Memorial Day weekend, and a re-cap of an activity L and I plan to attend on May 31 and June 1. That one will have some of you wondering if I've lost it completely...
