It's been so nice here the last week or so therefore I just couldn't stay in the house. Here's a few photos over the last couple of days or so.
Heading for a crew change at Hinton, West Virginia on the run towards Richmond, Virginia and points south. An empty phosphate train rolls through town
with a slice of Canadian bacon from Canadian Pacific up front showing the way. I think this makes up for missing the trio of Union Pacific motors on
an ethanol train the day before.
Taken just a few minutes after the passing of the phosphate train. Eastbound manifest freight Q302 rolls into town with a veteran EMD showing the way
up front. If you look closely, you can see the rest of the train stretched out around the curve in the background.
Running just a "touch" over two hours late this past Friday morning. Amtrak train #50, the eastbound Cardinal, is seen just after making its station
stop at Charleston, West Virginia on its tri-weekly run from Chicago, Illinois to New York City. On the point is Amtrak 156 in Amtrak's "Phase I"
One last photo to round out everything so far from the last couple days or so. The "Praxair Local" running east through town yesterday afternoon with
a pair of GP38-2s for power on this short train.
