    Yeah, since it got sold... but it's still a long way from its original home...

    It's sitting on the yard lead for the CSX yard at South Charleston, WV.

    Here's some more pics...

    Here's the other train I caught. It's tough to get anything usable with a moving train in the dark with no flash and no tripod, but...

    Eastbound Cardinal #51...

    I forgot all about this shot. I took it out the window of my car at a crossing in Van Nuys CA two years ago.

    This old girl is sitting on a siding with some "museum" cars in Berlin, NH.
    I couldn't bear to take any side view shots. There was plywood, rope, black plastic.... it was awful...

    I included a shot of the sheet that describes her history, and her potential future...

    Roseville yard 11/26. Here is proof that weathering is not always needed. These are positively shiny! The second unit, 9900, has an odd bump in the middle. It is apparently some sort of experimental emission bolt on. Looks like a great place to bump your head.

    Took this one earlier this month, Via pulling in as the local yard switcher was about to step out of the yard

    Then ended up in Toronto the other day and caught some CP action:
