Album Info:Took a trip to the BNSF Transcon on the Marceline Subdivision with one of my best friends. We started our trip at 6:30am in La Plata, Missouri and ended it at 8:30 in the small town of Ethel, Missouri. We started out in La Plata since there was great light for East bounds and the old ATSF signal bridge were still standing but from the looks of it they won't be there for much longer.
