Another off the Bucket List!
Author: lilwes

I saw on transitdocs.com that #3 was 9+ hours late into Topeka, Ks. today.  So I was able to get a picture of #3 on the Topeka Blvd. overpass in good light.  I have been waiting for this for many years and just tickled to get it.  If you look close you can still see the ad on the bridge for Topeka Railroad Days just under the rear of the BNSF power.
Thanks for looking, Wes.

Excellent Wes! I wish I had a dime, err quarter (for inflation) for every time we went under the Santa Fe overpass on South Topeka Blvd without seeing a train.
I also can't resist showing your shooting location and nearby points of interest. If the wind was blowing the right direction, you probably got hungry waiting for the train. BTW we enjoy that Topeka product up here in ND.

Nice photo catch Wes.  Been under there a few times but never have seen a train at the time.
