    Let's start off with some almost ancient history this week. This was from some time in the 90's before I moved to Marlette. Although I think I may have seen this pair again in Plymouth during my 6-1/2 year suburban Detroit exile, I couldn't find any photographic evidence of that. I did, however, definitely catch GP40-2 6480 and GP30 road slug 2253 a long time ago in Yale while they were still in the old CSX scheme. The disturbed earth in the foreground is where the old grain elevator had stood until shortly before this was taken.

    I'm assuming asfalto and UN 3257 would make that a car load of hot liquid tar.
    Did that load come from Mexico?

    Nice catch on the WP hopper!
    Not sure if this is a rerun or not, but a nice Rock hopper at Bowbells, ND:

    I got off early from work Friday and decided to take the scenic route home. I caught California Northern GP15 #1570 and one of the gen sets heading back north to Tracy. This is just between Crows Landing and Newman along Ca. 33.

    I might have to keep one clean. I have the older version (I think it's a Pullman Standard) that I want to really dirty up.
