Seeing 32 trains i had to break it down into 2 parts. Traffic Stayed pretty busy Intill about 2:30PM But i think that's the normal dead time on the transcon. Seeing more action Around Dallas City IL. Then headed back to Fort Madison For more. On the way back home We herd the bnsf 6095 Had troubles and was sitting at Montrose Ia. Thought we take a stop and roster shoot it.
