With all the major work on the Jeff City Sub done, this work train, WJCJCO 21, is picking up what is left.
A big suprise on train 303 today, not only does it have 1 of just s0 B32-8WH's built as the trailing unit, but it looks as if half the BNSF business fleet is tacked on to the end!
The DPU of an empty Westbound coal drag flies past Kirkwood station at around 8:00 pm. He had to be going at least 40 mph. 16 second exposure.
A station stop for 306 at Kirkwood, MO. Unfortunately I did not catch the locomotive number.
The locomotives from the Cuba turn run light down towards Valley Park.
Unit 6821 on CBTTS 15 raises a cloud of dust as she struggles to lift her train over Kirkwood Hill.
1 week later and unit 1091's headlights still havent been replaced, from what I understand, this is a FRA violation. Train is LSE59 17.
Westbound empty coal train.
Union Pacific #5933 passes through Kirkwood, this was interesting, as the 2 rear units were dead, the AC44 was all alone on that empty. As seen from the park across the tracks. Train ID was CDYSV ... (more)
Amtrak 303 glides into Kirkwood behind unit 205, gleaming in almost new (or possibly new) paint. As seen from the park across the tracks.
LSE59 10 comes past Kirkwood station at a good clip. Note that both headlights are out, how much of a safety hazard is that? The second unit is an ex MOP GP38-2.
CBTJO 07 with UP 7180 crests "the hill" and begins to throttle down for the slightly downgrade trip into St. Louis. Those things on the trees almost make this look like a fall shot!
An interesting sight as a single SD70M rolls through Kirkwood with a unit rack train. Also, it looks like I "pulled a Warren." The guy sitting on the ground to the left is N691LF, from Railpicture... (more)
Heading east at Kirkwood.
