In Lenny53's picture:  What is the purpose of that sign, and what is that strange situation between the two locomotives?

Its a drooping coupler - clearly the Alco needs a little blue pill - or at least a cup of coffee. :trollface:

Mike, you need to get up to Kingston to take shots of the Belleville local at the chemical plants.  Some good locations to catch those oil trains on the main too.  Last night was a parade of trains due to the closure all day by protests west of Kingston.  I think I saw eight trains in an hour.

Lots of BNSF showing up in MD recently.  Empty oil train headed west today.



Does Ed's Law count if an autorack is used as a spacer car?

Have made the trip once already, but did not get my target, which was the spur down to the lake... really want them on that curved wooden trestle. Nice places to shoot railroad east of Napanee, too.
