Louisville Section running late on this Moody Monday:
Nice railfanning weather; I would wear a light jacket.
Very nice lead-off with the coal train.  Still remember IC coal trains arriving in Louisville when I was a boy.
Always like the variety provided by intermodal traffic.  UPS trailer was a nice catch.
That mega grain train will make a lot of Wheaties * The Breakfast of Champions
Unit Of The Day is BNSF #9604
Thanks for your work and time compiling this interesting Ritzville update.
Always appreciate your postings.

Nice series Larry. The weather looks good for railfaning. We had some rains here and the hot weather is gone for a week or so.
