Walk in the park by DragonWolfACe
Walk in the park
Three SD45 carbody SD40-3s lead Alleghany Valley Rails Island Avenue transfer train back towards Glenwood, PA after interchanging freight cars with Norfolk Southern. They are just taking a walk in the park, West Park, or the trench, as it is named by Pittsburgh railfans.

Last shot, luck shot by DragonWolfACe
Last shot, luck shot
An October day draws to a close as the sun has set all but 10 minutes ago in the western Illinois countryside. A westbound train speeds along at 70 Mile per on BNSFs transcon over BNSFs St Joseph main at Cameron, Il. Both vital arteries with 50 trains below and 70 above, coal below, goods above.

Alas, I came into Cameron from chasing a warbonnet led freight and just missed the head end of this Union Pacific stack train. With some hope and luck, I wait and hope for locomotives on the rear. No other trains are this close and it will be dark in minutes! To my surprise, a pair of DPUs help push the nearly 2 mile long stack train westward. With the final shot, its time to head for the motel and plan the next day.

High priority by DragonWolfACe
High priority
Amtrak, as with all passenger trains, should be of highest priority. All other trains hold for Amtrak. Freight, while it pays the bills, can wait for people.

And so that is what is lost with the railroads. Back when the railroads ran the passenger trains, instead of Amtrak, passenger trains where the pride of the railroad and everything held for them. Then, as the automobile and airplane took over as the main transportation modes, passenger rail turned into an adventure more than a necessity.

And thus, the railroads threw away their bastard child and Amtrak was created. Now, with main lines at or exceeding capacity due to a oil boom, Amtrak has suffered.

But alas, not on this day as the westbound California Zephyr speeds by a waiting freight on the west side of Galesburg, IL.

My DA Story

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 12, 2014, 7:17 PM
I joined at the end of 2008 in December, nearly 6 years ago now! I knew about DA a few years before I joined but didnt because I wanted to have more of a arsenal of drawings to share. I originally joined just to submit my artwork but then I started submitting photos I took. Ive met a lot of good folks on here through the years. The rest is history for the most part. Heres some photos I liked...

That is weird. Because after thinking about it, I thought so too. DA can be weird at times I guess.
But, thanks again for watching me, Matt.
