    Yesterday I watched this guy switching his train back together after doing a drop, it is a nice slow backup move,

    Had two weird and interesting things this week. First was this GE waiting to leave town. The lead unit sounds odd, like it has a misfiring, or non-firing cylinder.



    And the second was a fun one, a "Slot Machine" train unloading ballast in the yard here. It only took two days to unload the whole thing.

    Chased a coal train eastbound out of Glendive today. Had a neat combo of power fore and aft. First view is at the Glendive creek bridge just after the "hump" getting out of town. The second view is just before the summit of Beaver Hill, which is almost to Wibaux. It is a 500 ft climb and is one of the reasons that the NP designed the Yellowstone loco, 2-8-8-4. So it is quite the work out, it was all of 45 minutes for the train to get to the summit from the bridge.
