    Default 2Q18 Prototype Photos Thread

    Well, it is April now (time is flying by). I spent today out chasing a BC Rail "Barn" (C40-8M) down the CNO&TP. It didn't tie down where I thought it would and after I got ahead of it, the crew finally got off the train, leaving me with fewer shots than I'd like. But anything is better than nothing, right?

    There has been a ton of foreign power on NS in central Kentucky over the last few months. Yesterday I saw UP, BNSF, a BNSF "fauxbonnet", the BC Rail unit, CN and the N&W heritage unit to boot. If I'd hung around longer I might've seen a CN/Citirail pair that was coming south.

    Great photos @SimRacin14! I especially liked the Tell City (How cool to have a train run down the center of your neighborhood street), as well as the #4523 crossing the stream. Thanks for posting.

    Thanks everyone. Finally had some decent weather around here for a change and took advantage of it. Almost got my first sunburn of the year!
