St. Louis Union Station
Title:  St. Louis Union Station
Description:  SLUS is looking great, the station was built in the late 1800's. My grandpa caught a troop train to New Jersey here in the 50's during the Korean War. We decided we better get out of town after we drove by the station and the clearing just south of it, a very strong line of severe thunderstorms was rapidly approaching, propting a Tornado Watch here and several Severe Thunderstorm Warnings to our west.

Southbound Manifest Through F3 Tornado Damage
Title:  Southbound Manifest Through F3 Tornado Damage
Description:  As we were coming back from Caruthersville, MO from surveying the damage we caught this Southbound Mixed Freight BNSF Train M STLAMO1 07 on the River Sub. where April 2nd's F3 Tornado crossed the tracks, the town of Braggadocio was 95% destroyed. The second unit sure was a catch! The crew waved while looking at the damage at 50 mph. When the lights started at the crossing, a pick up truck with a tree trimming business ran the lights, thank goodness there was a Missouri Highway Patrol Officer coming in the other lane, try that again, stupid. The detector said: no defects, total axles 134, temperature 48 degrees. The train was 47 cars long, with 29 loads and 18 empties. It weighed 4,256 tons and was 3,124 feet long.

Northbound Intermodal With No Katy
Title:  Northbound Intermodal With No Katy
Description:  We were at Stoddard County Highway ZZ up the hill in a housing development that is under construction just west of Dexter as UP Train IHOYC 08 came by. It was supposed to have UP 1988, the MKT "Katy" Heritage Unit in the consist between these two. It obviously was not. We later found out that it was removed from the consist in Hoxie, Arkansas because it was giving a locked wheel detection. We searched every siding all the way to Arkansas and never found it!

Set Out Katy Unit
Title:  Set Out Katy Unit
Description:  The UP 1988 MKT "Katy" Heritage Unit was set out here yesterday at 13:36C by UP Train IHOYC 08. The Reason on the Crew Message Was: "LEAD MOTOR SPEED SENSOR DISABLED FOR LOCKED WHEEL DETECTION." The locomotive was idling and had 4,370 gallons of fuel, meaning it had burned 130 gallons of it's 4,500 gallon capacity since it left North Little Rock, AR. A very polite officer from the Hoxie Police Department came by and we spoke to him for about an hour after explaining what we were doing.

Northbound Intermodal With CSX Power-LAST TRAIN PHOTOGRAPHED WITH MY HP PHOTOSMART 945!!!
Title:  Northbound Intermodal With CSX Power-LAST TRAIN PHOTOGRAPHED WITH MY HP PHOTOSMART 945!!!
Description:  On my birthday Alex and I went to see a train. We caught UP Train KMNOA 17 headed north at County Line Road. The crew waved and honked the horn at us. Alex is pictured at the right recording video. I'm sad to say this was the last train I shot with my 5.0 MP Hewlett-Packard Photsmart 945. It experienced an internal software error before this train passed. I purchased a new camera of equal value off ebay, a Kodak Z740. My last camera was a Kodak CX6230. It took over 15,000 images over 16 months. The HP lasted 5 months and took around 1,000 for me. Looks like I will be using my old Kodak until my new one arrives.

Bad Order
Title:  Bad Order
Description:  MY GOD! Talk about the things you find under overpasses in broad daylight! I'm not even talking about the E-Units! Mr. Happy Sunshine fell off of his train which he had just slept on...I mean ran for the past 12 hours, just to come over here and shoot the executive locomotives from his OWN RAILROAD! I heard somebody calling my name, this was the first time I was able to meet Dave Sanderbeck, I've spoken to him many times on IM and E-Mail. I'd wanted to meet him, he's a good guy. And look, both of their head ends are round, bald, shiny, and have the same logo on them.
