I shot a pile of photos last Friday between Blair and Fremont, Nebraska.  Trains had been bottled up for hours and I was there when they pulled the plug.  I should get them back Monday.

U.P. 4193 WB West of Bancroft, ID, April 2005

Seems more like a winter day than the first days of spring in Southern Idaho in April 2005 as U.P. 4193 is on the point in single track territory, West of Bancroft, ID.  This spot is just a few miles from Lava Hot Springs, ID where the wife and I like to go at least one weekend each month.  She soaks in the sun while I head out and shoot trains!  Works out wonderful for both of us.
 
It is a real toss up some times... but I still like shooting with my 35mm over my digital camera.  True, digital is easier, but there is something about chrome that has more warmth and I feel more in control of my shot.
 
Let me ask any one who views this pic.  Can you tell if this is a digital or 35mm shot?
 
THXS!

I was out chasing trains with my youngest daugther today.  Daddy's nine year old is taking after her father with an interest (obsession?) with the fun of the chase and capturing moments on film... or digital chips.
 
Here is some of today's action.  Here is U.P. 5220 headed eastbound West of Echo, UT.  The Union Pacific is undertaking a change over of the older signal towers and bridges to newer versions that look a lot whimpier.  Here you can see the old setting next to the new, with the newer one turned away from the track until it's ready to work.  Don't know how much longer they'll be around... but I will try to get out and photo more of them while they still exist.
 
Happy hunting, my fellow chasers!
 
Dave

Friday, May 27th, U.P. 9718 with CSX trailing unit heading Westbound and downhill through Weber Canyon.  The gravel road is actually the old highway through the canyon that was laid atop the even older wagon trail under it.  Today, Interstate 80 parellels the U.P. railroad from Ogden all the way through to Evanston, Wyoming.
 
We have had an extremely wet year here in Northern Utah with more flowers and hearty green plants abounding than most old timers can remember.  Makes for great landscapes when capturing our favorite subjects!
 
Enjoy....

UP 3895, EB just north of Hanover, Kansas on the Marysville sub. It would take 10 more hours for this train to travel the final 200 miles to Kansas City.

My calendar shot... U.P. 5229 is Eastbound in the Wasatch Range of Northern Utah on June 5, 2005.
 
We are having an exceptionally wet year here, so we're as green as Ireland or Scotland, and the snow up there at altitude just refuses to go away.  Makes it great for those of us who love to shot trains and preserve their beauty for another day, another year, another time....

Gravity Yard 6-7-2005. Mainline is to the right of the hump power. The switch to the right goes to the Port of Pine Bluff. Thanks to Bill McCaskill for the Gravity tour. If you ever get to Pine Bluff look for Bill at the Arkansas Railroad Museum.

Caught at Evanston, WY on my weekend run today.  Took my 10 year old daughter along and we had a grand ol' time chasing down trains from Ogden, UT to Evanston, WY.  She's even beginning to know and see the differences between a GE and EMD!  LOL!
 
Here's a photo I captured today at just the moment when the westbound coming through town passed in front of the Evanston Depot, where one of the U.P.'s former caboose is on display.  Still nice to see a locomotive with a caboose every once in a while.

Since I live on the U.P. mainline, and I am the son and grandson of U.P. railroaders, I will do my best to keep this thread going with my contributions.  Of course, I would like to see more action from around the country... but in the mean time, I'll keep all of you in the scene with action here in Northern Utah.
 
Here is the Northeast mouth to Echo Canyon with eastbound U.P. 5425 on the point.  Storms had rolled into Northern Utah on Saturday, June 11, 2005 when this scene was captured.  The train was headed for Wyoming and it was clear behind me.  Clouds were really picturesque, the grasses are so green from all of our heavy Spring rains, and the old maintenance of way road has been abandoned for an improved one on the south side of these tracks.  The wood bridge is actually an old U.P. flatcar with the stenciling still quite clear "Road of the Streamliners."  Last stenciling date on the flat that I could see was 9-67.  (I snapped pics of the bridge from the side if any one is interested in seeing detail shots.)
 
I can't help but wish I could have been in this canyon... any where within site and sound when the turbines were running at speed up and down the route.  I remember them well from the shops in Council Bluffs when my Dad was working on them, but I was only 10 at the time... and they seemed like fire breathing dragons at that age!  lol....
 
Enjoy!

Here's a shot just east of Salina of the end of an EB coal train and a WB about ready to head off.
