Blessed this morning
Author: JETRR

This morning's twilight blessed me with a delightful cover of ground fog along with two unique trains meeting on the Norfolk Southern's former Wabash RR line. Eastbound NS 904 geometry train showed up first at Clymers, IN to meet westbound NS 911 rail train. I came darn close to having an opportunity to catch both trains passing in the frame. The last photo was taken further west at Buck Creek, IN.

Are they dropping rail down that way too?  Last week I caught them dropping rail between Roanoke and Mardenis. I have no idea what the scope of that project is.

Not sure how far west this train would be traveling. All I know is it passed through Lafayette Junction heading toward Decatur. West of Lafayette had new rail installed last year so I assume it is for the STL or KC lines west of Decatur.

What a great image to wake up to this morning! One of the best IOTDs I've seen in my entire 9 year -so far- ride aboard this TO express. Outstanding series of photos, a couple of which will go right into the ol' collection. And thank you very much for sharing... :^)

You were indeed blessed. Rarely does a railfan photograph under such beautiful lighting.
