Native American summer

October is my favorite month to live in north Texas. The weather has cooled off from the heat of summer, the air has dried out, and behind every cold front there's a stretch of sunny days and pleasant temperatures that I wish could last forever. Even when I'm preoccupied with other things in my life, I always try to get out at least a few times to enjoy the weather and shoot some photos...

A BNSF military train with KCS locomotives waits for a crew in Haslet on October 2.

Another look - KCS 669 at Haslet, TX.

After coupling the crossing in Haslet, the conductor caught a taxi down to Blue Mound Road and waited for his train to catch up with him.

KCS 4684 in the "Southern Belle" scheme leads southbound grain loads through Saginaw on the UP Duncan Sub.

KCS 4684 at 17th Street in Fort Worth

A GP15-1 / Genset combo works a switch job south of UP's Ney Yard in Fort Worth.

On October 7, Ft. Worth & Western 2010 switches an industry near Cleburne on the former Santa Fe Cresson Subdivision.

Check back in a few days for more... I've got a Fred Eaglesmith show to review, plus photos from another recent trip to Six Flags... coming soon.
