4. Coming around the curve at Santa Fe Jct, heading North on the KC
5. After going thru the North Kansas City maze the train went to the NS intermodal yard called Voltz. The train was wyed at Voltz and here we are at Birmingham where they switched to the DNE\UP trackage.
6, The train then crossed back over the Missouri River on the Truman bridge then we caught it just as it got back onto home rails at Airline Jct.

Very nice! Thought those "Retro Belles" looked good but these FP9's beat them all to hell.

Hey Sneebly...I'm guessing while you were taking that first pic, I was taking your pic and you didn't even know it! Here's a couple that I shot today....

While on top of the parking garage I looked over to the Stuart Hall building and wondered where you might be.

I managed to get back from Topeka in time to catch her as well.

1.) Pulling south at Birmingham Jct. 8-31-11 - Birmingham, MO

2.) Coming past Airline Jct., calling out the signal for Southwest Jct. 8-3-11 - Kansas City, MO

3.) All I could get at Union Station since the train pretty much smoked me, that and I didn't exactly hurry, which I suppose I should have. Oh well, I'll get her in the morning on the way to work.
