Southbound UP Manifest Train  Contributor's Pick!       
The moon had already risen and CNW 8701 is passing through Dudley as I tried to recreate scene more reminiscent of the CNW, way down here in SEMO, with the Riceland Foods Grain Elevator and Siding.

I figured I'd post a couple of the other remaining CNW unit, since its sister, 8646 has been hanging around my general area for a while now.

David Mead General This is a splendid shot and portrays the locos and trains in their finest - I like seeing the farm industrial part as this conjures the lifestyle of your area. I wonder if you could crop the bottom of the slide, in order to hide the dead end rail - that is inclined to be distracting when viewing and also would provide a full 3/4 landscape view. 3/2/2007 3:38:34 AM
Max Koehn General ah grain trains at grain elevators. marvelous shot! 3/2/2007 1:57:57 PM
Zach Pumphery General Joe: Thanks. David: I left the spur in the shot just to portray that it is a loadout track, if you didn't see the dead end, you might assume it is a passing siding. Max: It was a manifest with a few covered hoppers at the beginning. 3/2/2007 5:34:07 PM
