Ludington - 9/11/04 and 12/31/04

Unread postby BB » Sat Jan 01, 2005 2:56 am

I'll call this a trip, 30 miles south from home. Since I liked Scooterb's idea of the thumbnails, I figured I'd try it out. Also first post of 2005 :D

<u>First some pics from September 11, 2004 around Ludington. Click on thumbnails.</u>

Here is the wye, track coming toward you goes to DOW Chemical.
Image

Here's C&O 903158 caboose used for a shoving platform to DOW.
Image

CSX 2631 and 2727 were teamed up here.
Image

<u>Now onto December 31, 2004.
</u>
Couple views of the Ludington Yard.
Image

Image

C&O 903158 again.
Image

Then it's 2557 in Ludington. Like taking pics now with a digital camera that my family bought back in August but I swear all my pictures have 2557 in the lead. Was the leader in my fall pic and then in late Nov. and go to Ludington and there it is again. I can't recall when a single unit was based in Manistee for such a long time from Nov. to Dec. because usually they change every 1-1/2 weeks.
Image

Teamed with 2557 is 2506. At least the two of them look good together in YN1 paint.
Image

Finally here is Ludington Yards safety slogan. There's a nice little paved road that goes down to the yard now (used to be gravel). It goes to Ludington's area public transportation bus garage.

Thanks for sharing your pics BB. How did you get the thumbs to blow up by clicking on them? I like that way better than mine.
By the way will be doing some fanning tommorow in Ohio with my son. Hopefully pics early next week.

Your welcome, here's how you make thumbs clickable (using one of your pics as an example which I like this picture), I disabled the BBCode in this post so it shows up like this:

Example
[url=http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=74500][img]http://gp30.rrpicturearchives.net/pictures/2504/thumbnails/2.JPG[/img][/url]

See next post for an explanation.

When you open a picture in Railroad Picture Archives, go to the bottom of the pic where it says Link to this page:http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=74500 and copy that link and put it [url=here][img]put%20your%20thumbnail%20url%20address%20here[/img][/url]

Hope that helps.

So if you want to, copy that example above this message and paste it to a reply to this message to see the picture I like :D

I'm going to try this on my next trip report, so I think I'll practice here:

It worked! That is a SWEET picture! I'm a huge fan of Sunrise/Sunset shots.
