Pulling down for a meet
Title:  Pulling down for a meet
Description:  Though theres already one going on here. I had seen the southbound grain train after I had dropped off recycling in Siloam, and decided to take chase. I caught up to him here in Watts, where he was holding the main for an impending northbound, but also because the dodger, L 102, was working the yard, using the siding for head room.

Dodger in the pink
Title:  Dodger in the pink
Description:  I heard the radio say the dodger was going to Gentry to change ends, so I waited, figuring I could at least see it, if not get a photo. There was still enough light in the sky to work a silhouette. To my great delight, the sky had picked up a swath of pink from the now departed sun hitting a cloud, giving this unusual scene. Three units have 11 cars in tow.

Three Belles
Title:  Three Belles
Description:  What I have found intriguing about the repaint program on KCS is that the local power, and even some switchers, have mostly been painted into the Belle scheme, a lot of them long ago. I rarely encounter a gray GP 38 or 40 much-though there was one on the dodger earlier this week. Todays dodger has a Belle trio as it makes its way onto the main and heads for Decatur.

Getting harder to find
Title:  Getting harder to find
Description:  The dodger, L 102, rolls south behind a gray GP 38. Once a common scheme, now it seems almost all the four motor power has been repainted into the Belle scheme. It used to be I would look for a Belle unit leading. Now, the rarity is one in the old scheme. Southbound going under US 412 with 15 cars.
