A nice autumn morning in Elkhart, IN
Author: chuchubobnv

After an all night drive from western KY and a short nap Dave and I were ready to enjoy a beautiful fall day and chase some trains. We took our nap right across from the run-through service rack on the north side of the yard and were ready to go at first light.

1. NS 8351 East gets a fresh crew while the power gets serviced.

2. NS 9292 starts off a short eastbound pig parade.

3. NS 8390 leads another herd of pigs headed east.

Looks like everyone in the first photo has on the same color/type of pants. NS making crews wear an approved uniform? I do doubt that, but it kinda looks like it.

Kind of too bad to get to Elkhart and not leave with an RV...!

We went to the Marshmallow Festival in Ligonier once.
I watched a bigwheel race.
Thanks for the good Hoosier shots.
Try for some street running in Goshen.

Thanks

Mark
