      Was a terrific weekend indeed! This might be the first year I got any pictures lol

      Sunday I wasn't a very good railfan as I only got a couple pics, but here we see a rare lashup with a set of Southern Pacific heritage units leading a set of Bluestone Southern SD-40s on a track sweep from overlook to the yard

      Thank you Andy and Jane for a wonderful weekend with friends and trains :D and I really like the Overlook switching puzzle, I wont mention anything though about all the broken Coke bottles from a recent switching maneuver up there ;)

      Steve, Jane and I got all the cow damaged track replaced the week prior..   Took a total of 3 hours..   We replaced the entire section of track, I still have to go thru it all, and see how much I can salvage..   Ground stayed wet till about 10 days before Ops, then we were trying to play ""catch-up"" to get ready for Ops...

      Thank you, just told Rachel that I can't wait to get released to back to full duty and start working on our railroad here in Ste Genevieve. Wish we could see you all some time, missed having fun running and talking trains.

      Todd, Great to hear from you....

       

      About the bridges, I hear there's a place that has stacks of these in Missouri...  Give me some time, I"ll remember it, sometime...

      I guess she has cooling issues. All of the pictures have her running with the engine doors open.
