The Rescan Files: Cotton Belt 819
Author: MaryMcPherson

I scanned a lot of my photography a number of years ago, and am going through everything again to do a better job of it.

Well, these are the only two that were worth posting.  The speed of the train kicked our butts, and the lighting was crap where we were able to get ahead of it.  So, here we have #819 where we began our attempt to chase on June 13, 1990, as the 4-8-4 ran to St. Louis for the NRHS convention: crossing the Thebes bridge from southeast Missouri into southern Illinois.

I think I was down there for that crossing in 1990. Definitely was at the convention in St Louis. On the chase of 819 I was rear ended in Mt Vernon by an older gentleman who was very apologetic. There was no damage to my rental and I was in a hurry, I told him not to worry and was back on the road. Now I am that old dude.

Sure was fun watching 819 get up and really run.
