UP 6533
Title:  UP 6533
Description:  Had gotten a tip that a Heritage unit was on the head-end of a northbound due in to Dupo at a specified time. Had a small window of opportunity to be trackside just before the appointed hour...but no joy. After a couple of other northbound moves (like this one) rolled through, my time was up and the rain was coming down. Better luck next time for me - but I hope someone else caught it.

UP 8453
Title:  UP 8453
Description:  When I left the house, the sky was a crystal clear blue. In the 20 minutes it took me to get trackside, this flat, milky overcast had taken its place. Within a few more hours, there would be a severe storm outbreak with massive hail damage. Nothing like Springtime in the Midwest. All things considered, I guess it really wasnt so bad as this northbound manifest approached the BB Road crossing in Columbia.
