Title:  I am NOT a happy camper
Description:  If you like getting cuts, clothing nearly torn by thorns, nearly breaking your ankle, getting your photo and then getting soaked by a freak rainstorm before you can get back to your car ONLY to get home and find this shot absolutely bombed, this shot is for you. My camera is lucky not to be shattered in a million pieces. The one and only time I get to this location this ____ happens. For what its worth, this is CP Worley and NS 9574 leading train 214. Its beginning to not be a good day at the office.

Title:  Feb 12, 2006 - Train 40T grain train
Description:  Another reroute for the day is 40T passing under the intermediates in downtown Kings Mountain.

This was the last picture with the wrong settings, hopefully the next pictures will come out better...NEVER shoot 400 speed on a digital camera.
