Keep the postings coming Justin.

It's a fifty mile or more trip for me to get to Milan, but the Wabash is a very active line. I've gotten some good pictures there. There are some wide open spaces where you can get a good pic.

Most of the MOW people are railfan friendly. I've had no encounters with NS Police. I would guess they are busy in Detroit.

Well from my house here i can pickup from Belleville MP24 to Milan MP36 of the Wabash. In the near future when i make a larger antenna i will be able to pick up farther. Also i can pick up the Yard Master @ Oakwood/Melvindale yard. Hope this helps to get some more shots of the line. Also ive been working on a video of the NS Wabash from Detroit - Butler. Catching all the new CP Traffic aswell as a good amount of NS trains. Hope to be finished shooting by summer of 09 and Release fall of 09.
