Nice series Scott!
The first two locomotives on 29T (5913 and 9014) came back east on CSX With Train X544 (I think) on the 28th. Here they are racing through Williamston, Michigan:

It was originally in color, and a lot bigger than it is now, but it had some HORRIBLE lense flare to it. I cropped some of it out, but there is still some flare that I can't remove. I turned it into a Black-White photo in an attempt to try and hide the flare, but you can still see it if you look closely. :( I do like BW though. Sometimes I'll have a picture which nothing is wrong with, and I'll convert it to BW anyway, just because it looks better, and sometimes I just set the camera to BW.
