Orange submarines in Kansas?
Author: santafe199

How do you run a grain train at periscope depth? It ain’t easy...

1. BNSF 8562 is on patrol in the prairie deeps just south of Navarre, KS on the Strong City Sub. Where is the periscope?

2. Now patrolling the deeps just south of the UP/BNSF crossing once called Jacobs, KS (back in the Rock Island/Santa Fe days). But I still don’t see any periscope... ;^)

Make your depth 8 feet!

Lance,
Are you suggesting they "Dive, Dive, Dive" as the train approaches the Golden State Route?

You missed your opportunity Lance. If you had shot UP units you would have had Yellow Submarines!

Oooh... good call!! Uncle Pete does exercise his trackage rights on this line regularly. I'll have to sneak over there and catch him in "enemy waters"...

I remember going into a hobby shop many years ago and seeing a book on the shelf called "U-Boats In Action".  Much to my disappointment it was about submarines of the German Kriegsmarine, not 4-stroke locomotives from Erie. :)

You sure that isn't somebody with really bad conjunctivitis giving you the once-over through the periscope of U-291?
