Yard Derailment
Title:  Yard Derailment
Description:  Here's the scene and how it happened. The three locomotives (SSW 9647, UP 177, and UP 2537) ran across a switch in the yard, where the switch frog joins the rail of the track, the old rotten tie fell through, it broke in half, the frog fell through the tie and the rail broke out of it, coming up and knocking the brake shoe connecting rod loose from the rear axle on the fireaman's side of SSW 9647, and the rear axle jumped on top of the rail head. The rear axle was was knocked back over into the gage as I arrived. These two men drove up with the area wheel truck were at work repairing the brake rigging as the truck in the background unloads a new section of rail, a frog, and a few ties.

Northbound UP Intermodal Train
Title:  Northbound UP Intermodal Train
Description:  This was taken back before I knew WTF an artistic silhouette image was, even though I took it. Here we see UP Train ZLDYC 17 blasting past my old crossing with UP 3300 on the point. I remember how great of a horn she had at the time. Sometime during January 2005 while on the CSX in Georgia she acquired the Leslie RS-5T that was on the roof at the time. Talk about awesome. The train had 248 axles, it was traveling 51 mph, and it was 33 degrees outside, according to the detector at MP 157.9 on the UP Hoxie Sub. and my old notes.

Uphill
Title:  Uphill
Description:  When the lead unit rolled by, the engineer (with a BNSF cap on), with eyes bugged out, held up two fingers and pointed towards the rear of the consist with his thumb, he had to be pointing at the SD45-2's and the MRL unit. If he was a BNSF person he obviously knew this was quite rare. I nodded my head and snapped a pic as they rolled on by.
