Caught him
Title:  Caught him
Description:  I was coming back from Gentry, and crossed the KCS at Davidson Rd. I looked south to see headlights coming around the curve down by the Cobb mill. I pulled across and hustled out to get set up. This was the catch, a northbound empty AEPX coal train with eight units. The second two were the best looking, a pair of ex CNW GEs that had been freshly painted. They would have looked better in CNW paint, but these looked good. Too bad they werent leading.

Down in the hollow
Title:  Down in the hollow
Description:  My next spot was north of Dorsey siding, just south of Gravette. It took me a little bit to catch him, since I had to let the whole train pass me at Davidson Rd, and the lighting is not good for a northbound at Gentry that time of day anyway. As it was, I didnt beat him here by much, having just enough time to get there and turn the car around before he showed. I still got a good shot, but then had to wait for the train-all 125 cars of it-to pass me again.

Caught up again
Title:  Caught up again
Description:  I had to wait for the train to pass me at Dorsey, so it was a good chase to catch him. There was no way I was going to get him at Gravette, and he was going under the bridge at Sulphur Springs when i went over. I heard him call the signal at South Noel as I was passing the state line. He was going to meet the southbound H train there, so I was able to get him. Otherwise, it would have been a hard run to get him on the bridge at Ginger Blue. Here we are slowing for the meet, passing the old station.
