Hi Larry, thanks for braving the elements.

I did a quick cruise through your photos, always looking for something unusual.  When I saw an Amtrak unit I thought,"that's unusual enough", I wonder if Larry has seen Amtrak on a freight before.  Then I checked your captions and sure enough, first time.

Stay warm, and thanks for posting.

Nice dramatic snow shot in #3, really like that.  Not many times can you get a passenger unit in a freight train anymore.
