When You Can't See the Railroad for the Trees
Title:  When You Can't See the Railroad for the Trees
Description:  This is the southern leg of the BNSF wye at Mark, MO. (actually the north switch is Mark, the east is Falk, the west is North River, but we'll call it Mark here) Located about five miles south of the yard at West Quincy, it connects the Hannibal Sub ("the K-Line") with the Brookfield Sub. This view shows as it curves to the west; the signal protecting this point is situated behind the photographer and still stands while dutifully illuminated in red although there seems to be no chance of traffic headed for Hannibal off this line anytime soon. For an earlier picture of this same piece of trackage on RRPA.NET, Gary Dyehouse shot it in 2002 when the trees were considerably less dense.

UP Local at Polo
Title:  UP Local at Polo
Description:  I don't usually recall UP when I think of slugs on the road- certainly not like, say CSX, but here's UPY940 on the head end of four-car local "39" at Polo MO. It's one of only two of model S6-1B on the road. A new crew has just boarded and they will soon head for Trenton. The signals in the background protect the junction with the ICE.

Holcim Cement no1
Title:  Holcim Cement no1
Description:  Holcim Cement SW1 no1 sits on the siding along the BNSF at the Clarksville plant, which is located just north of Clarksville MO at a point called Dundee by the railroad. The plant was opened by Dundee Cement Co in 1967, became Holnam Cement in 1988 and Holcim in 2001. The 71 year-old SW1 was built for the Burlington and served for a stint with the Missouri & Illinois Bridge & Belt RR at Alton before returning to the CB&Q. It was given number 76 by the BN, retired in 9/70 and sold to Dundee Cement for this location. Over the following 40 some-odd years it received roller bearings, replacement headlights and a white paint job whose stripes vaguely follow what it wore while in Burlington switcher black. Holcim announced the closure of the Clarksville plant in 2009; it has also had an SW900 and several side-rod GEs here over the years. The last GE appears to have left for points unknown while the SW900 was still present at the dead plant as of mid-2014.
