Turntable Tuesday northern transcon action comments:
Friendly crews with their toot-toots always brighten any day.
Tagging NP heritage hopper was downright uncivilized behavior.
Lind Turn is my kind of train; especially like to see your photos.
FXE #4053 was a very nice catch; getting a taste of cold climes.
Unit Of The Day is BNSF #9059, pushing its weight around.
Thanks for the interesting Ritzville action update.
Always appreciate your time and work.
ALLEN
