And Bowie is well pleased...


Not much new for me, so how about something from the vault?

No photos but some info on the Pope's Creek Branch.  Just found out that the EMD GP7 that they use at the rock quarry near LaPlata is an ex Rock Island unit.  I know there are a few Rock fans out there.

Dave, nice Black Hills pics. I just love that area, and have been on the "ride" several times over the years. Love to walk the old rail trails too.

That had to be some cool railroading in its' day, and the Custer area is just so nice.

Here's a photo I took back in the days when the railroad through town actually hauled trains on a regular basis.

And now for some recent stuff:

Starting off in early March of this year, I saw something that had strayed a bit:




It was hauling a lot of phosphate:





Did a Conrail Queen get a hold of this?




About a week ago I caught some night action:








Finally, there is new power down to the port:

Who is a Rock fan?  Rock engine working a rock quarry? Sounds like a good match.       :P

And where is this rock quarry? I never knew there was one in LaPlata. I thought all that went down that far south was coal for the power plant.
No farms, no food.

I didn't know it was there until 2 months ago.  Chased a CSX rock runner with an SD80MAC running long hood forward and found the place.  It's off Rosewick road a couple miles north of LaPlata. Check Bing maps and you can see the facility and the locomotive.
