I am having an amazing day today. I took my son in to day school and we had to wait for a 6 engine NS intermodal train carying 150+ double stack well cars. It just kept going, and going and going. I didn't have a camera handy at the time, but when I returned home to supervise some landscaper, I was lucky enough to see this.





One of the things that attacked me to my house is that there's a small branch line that delivers box cars to a local industry twice a week. I'm usually at the store, so I miss it. But today was my lucky day! My second story office looks out on the tracks.

The day just got better!

My next door neighbor worked the Reading Rail lines then Conrail then NS as a conductor / engineer. He just gave me his conrail jacket (3 years injury free) and a Motorola 2 Way Radio. I can hear the trains working the yards in Allentown, Reading and even out to Harrisburg. 4 channels with the railroad crystals. Cool!
