Working its way, West and tiptoeing over old and cold 90# rail, Crossing the West fork Des Moines River.
Crawling past the distant for the Iowa Northern crossing

The aftermath of cutting a snow drift, Air filters full of snow, Walkways full of snow and the horns full maybe by the end of the day
Crossing the old wood trestle over Buffalo Creek.
All most had the new paint smell. I am getting a friendly wave as the train passes me.
Running light power back to there Bryant yard after dropping the UP set out from haulage rights.
MMCBE is about to make a set out as a photographer takes a closes up.
Dragging loads back from the CN and punching a drift.

Last year DME ran plow after plow to keep the drifts at bay.
