High view of an eastbound
Title:  High view of an eastbound
Description:  This is a view not typically seen, due to the lateness of the day, when the shot would be into the sun here. One advantage of the awful weather was being able to use the overcast to work the light, so we can see this 270 rolling into the curve at MP 231.

Winter camouflage
Title:  Winter camouflage
Description:  On the KCS, where they dont get a lot of snow, the white did not have the issue with blending into its surroundings. On the D&H, well, that was a different story. Three ex KCS units lead a westbound 270 toward the yard at BX, doing a good job of blending in to their environment.

Han Solo
Title:  Han Solo
Description:  These are not the stacks you are looking for. A solo GATX unit has train 252, about to become HAN 2 when the NYSW crew takes over, at QD. I don't recall if the Suskie added power to this train. If not, it was a long night on the Delaware Division for the crew.
