Some have all the luck others don't have any at all. Have seen it three days in a row, twice in daylight.

I guess that's how it goes BL2-1843!!!!! Well I had my "Luck" turn around yesterday (posted last night) by catching UP AC4400CW #6310 (SP Patch) in New Boston!!!! :mrgreen: Now it's in PA!!!!

Don't feel to bad years ago in Fostoria i had a streak of bad luck. Back in the 90s at night there was a SP SD70M in full SP paint and numbers unpatched in the lead at 2 in the morning. A ex EL SD45-2 in the lead in fresh YN2 paint at 1 in the morning. And the kicker was a Susquehanna F45 in the lead! At 1 in the morning!

I have missed my fair share of good trains in my life! Just last year's "Weed Train" with the WC GP40-2 is one of the recent "Misses" I thought about!!!! I have never caught a NYSW F45!!!! I did in 1992 catch a former NYSW B40-8 on CSX at Rougemere Yard, Dearborn, also with Chessie GP30M!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Here's that "Light Engine" movement I photographed (Canon® 35mm S.L.R.) and it even had "Red Marker" lights turned on:

Q32929 by Howell at 09:18. CSX 8064+8255 with 88 cars. Two good EMD units. 8200s are rare, most assigned to yards. Had not seen that one since 3-25-05. Should be at least 35 more cars to pick up Lansing if they get them. Q32829 went east at 06:58 with 136 cars. CSX 3247+3201 on the head end.
