Toto Tuesday: Waiting on the special
Author: santafe199

I got up even before the dern chickens yesterday morning to go scout out a place to shoot Uncle Pete’s latest passenger special. When I arrived here at Snokomo Rd there was a heavy mist floating just above the fields, and I thought this could be a really unique series of shots. When I heard this train coming through town I was praising my great good fortune. It turned out to be a false alarm, although I did go ahead and shoot this stacker. Who wouldn’t?

My intended target, UP’s Engineering Special would appear just under an hour later. And I correctly assumed the mist would be burned off by that time…

1. & 2. UP 2631 leads a 1x1 stacker eastbound, approaching and passing the Snokomo Rd crossing at Paxico, KS at 6:27 AM. The special would follow 59 minutes later.

3. At 6:38 AM Mr Sol joins the party amidst further proof that “No matter where you gothere you are”.

Was wondering what your answer would be.  Never thought it would be what it was.  Of course your mind works opposite of most other people.  This is meant to be a compliment.........
