OK, I don't have anything to add today, but trying to get it going a bit earlier.
Yesterday, I was surprised by NS 1067 single-handedly leading NS 20V East past the former Reading freight house in Wernersville, PA, on the NS Harrisburg Line. The freight house held a pizzeria for many years but is currently vacant.
Our visit to the Laws museum.
Dead line in Grand Junction.
Kind of washed out, but still a favorite memory for me. About 35 years ago, this guy showed up at BN Interbay (Seattle), WA. Seen here about to be run through it's inspection before being sent back out again:
CSX 574 leads a southbound at Emerson GA - Feb. 2004
Picture of Kingston CT station take by my sister from an Amtrak Window:
They were bound for Roanoke VA. It reached DC and there were no diesels available.
Ooooops. Couple of hours later they 'arrived'.
Aspens in color at Winter Park.
I'm diggin' that depot a lot and it's a great shot too. Former NYHY&H?
So am I. It's a real beauty. It's got class.
When I see a station like that, I always daydream of moving in and setting up housekeeping, and putting in a nice big train room...
Thanks guys. I'll let my sister know.
Um, I assume it is, 'Kingston CT' but don't know for sure.
Isn't that the Kingston, RI, Amtrak station?
Just checked - its Rhode Island. Close enough to spit a wad of chawin' tobacky over the state line...
Couple more pics she *just* this minute sent from the 'Museum of Transportation Virginia:
Nice shot of this steamer:
Not sure where she caught this:
Thanks for the correction. ☻
I've been making the most of the fall color in the Minot, ND area.

@HemiAdda2d Beautiful shots!
We made it to Chicago yesterday on one locomotive. Left one in Denver after it broke down. They still were scorching the ballast all the way.
