Dodger
Title:  Dodger
Description:  The southbound H train was held at Gentry for the dodger to get into the siding. He held to the north of town so as not to block road crossings, allowing me a shot of the local.

Fly in the ointment
Title:  Fly in the ointment
Description:  When the northbound empty TXUX train didnt start once the H train cleared the north switch at Stilwell, it caused me to miss the shot of the Belle leader at the station. Heres why the northbound didnt get the signal: this light power move south, coming into town about 15 minutes behind the H train.

Ten minutes too late
Title:  Ten minutes too late
Description:  I had gone up to Gentry to drop off some food at my sons house, and saw a headlight as I crossed the tracks in town. I ran up toward the McKee plant, to find the dodger was just getting his train back together to head south. Ive wanted to catch him working here, with the company sign and the train together. It will have to be another day.

Feeding time
Title:  Feeding time
Description:  I took off from McKee Foods before the train started, and set up so I could get this shot of him rolling his dozen cars past the Curran Feed Store downtown. Across the tracks is another Gentry fixture, The Chicken Coop, a long time flea market.

Hiding in the rushes
Title:  Hiding in the rushes
Description:  Sounds rather Mosaic, doesnt it?? The L 102 dodger is working Pipelife in Siloam Springs as I approach on Kenwood St. Its a grab shot from the car, but I like it.

Look away
Title:  Look away
Description:  The dodger spends a lot of time pulling up and shoving back at Pipelife, and an awful lot of time standing still. I caught one of those moments from the US 412 overpass, looking down on a former CN widecab, now repainted into the Belle scheme. Looks good on that nose.

Picking up a stray
Title:  Picking up a stray
Description:  The car back on the house track had been set off for some reason, probably a defect that needed repair. The dodger was to pick it up, but whatever reason it was there apparently kept it there, as they didnt take it in the end. View is from the Ark 12 overpass.

McKee Foods
Title:  McKee Foods
Description:  Youve probably heard of them, except not likely by this name. They make those Little Debbie cakes and cookies that you find just about everywhere. One of their plants is here in Gentry, and a KCS customer for inbound freight, which consists of vegetable oil and flour. The dodger switches the plant, a full set of Belles doing the honors.
