Got caught at an unguarded crossing, as Utah Railway pulled some cars from a UP storage track in North Salt Lake City, Utah.

All I'm seeing are some dust bunnies from a dirty sensor.

The 50D has an ultrasonic CCD cleaner.

Was gonna to bulldog noses but since it looks like a CSX day and I was at St Denis today and it was busy.

Here's an oldie on an Eastbound off the Old Mainline.  Ed you should like this:





A few others:










It was mostly a coal and Gevo day.  Even Gevo's on the helpers today.

P.S.  The SD80MAC's are back running through here.  Two went by yesterday and I was also told that a couple days ago there were 2 FEC units on an Eastbound train early in the morning.  Also missed one of the new MARC's units by about 2 minutes this morning.

Nice stuff from around my area Ian! You should have swung by the Grafton & Upton yard in North Grafton to grab some shots of their newest locomotive.

These are some shots I took of it on Sunday.
