I tried to catch up to them, but they wouldn't slow down. :lol:

The 12:30 trip stopped just short of Rabourn road and is headed back south at 13:00.


This will be useful for my chase tomorrow. Thank you!


Glad to help, the afternoon trains went a little farther. They crossed Rabourn, but didn't seem to get to the next mile.

If you want to hear the engine working, park at Rabourn and walk south a little farther on the trail that runs along the tracks. They are coming up out of a dip there.

That's a good spot to catch them. Had I known you were there, I would have stopped and introduced myself.

This is one of my favorite spots even though its roughly a twenty foot open spot between the trees. And conveniently located on the mail route. :lol:

Admin: this may be better located in the May GLC updates.

HESR3868: I have two questions for which you may or may not know the answer. Is the rail new or relay? Who is the contractor? Thank you.

I've already moved the post over and attempted to edit this one, but the signal hasn't been good lately to fix. I haven't seen the rail up close, so I'm unsure on that. GLC's MOW is putting it in, with the state helping fund it
