Clouds don't stop trains from running.
Started the day arriving at Butler at about 7:45.

After that quick spurt I decided to head down to the CSX. At CR 75 bridge I caught two west bound frieghts.

On my way back to the Chicago Line I shoot the local is switching out SDI.

I here Q390 & Q396 clear St. Joe so I know I missed them. Just kept heading back to Butler. As soon as i get back an NS West bound frieght clears MP 358.

1:49 NS 16E NS 9964 & Rent-a-wreck

Only had one shot left and heard the road railer heading up the Wabash so I decided to try and catch him(yea right). Ended up in Montpilier where I shot a side by side(not moving) dont have # yet cause it was a jump out, shoot, & leave.

Last train I saw was NS 191 crossing US127 with two NS Locos to far to catch #s.
I know that I have missed a few locomotive #s but its pretty difficult taking a picture than catching the # at 70mph.
Though it was cloudy the amount of trains made up for it. Will have pictures as soon as funds allow (if ya know what I mean). Hope you enjoy.

Saint Joe is just west of State line where the NS huntington district [Wabash line] crosses the CSX line. Just west of Hicksville
