Going away
Title:  Going away
Description:  The DPU on the empty northbound passes between the signals at Mc Elhany as the train pulls away toward Neosho and the BNSF, ex Frisco crossing. I really should have quit on this guy at Noel, and followed the southbound back, but I dont get up here all that often, and it was still early enough to have good light. I did get a bonus in the Government Lead siding, though, so that was a plus.
