Nice catches Larry.  Looks like the vegetation in current photos has greened up a little.  Big batch of orange but at least not all GEs

Mega trains. Used to be unusual here on the Stampede but I see two or three a day now. So do the crews get more money operating them? When I was driving truck we made more per mile pulling triples in Oregon than doubles.
