4. Train 22X makes a peaceful scene, and not only are the herons out fishing today, the humans are also. Power is NS 9678, KCS 4108 and NS 1835.

5. A closer look at the colorful KCS 4108 on the 22X.

6. One of the herons takes a break from fishing to check out the 22X.

Good to see the Canada cylindrical hoppers. They have been retiring them and cutting them up.
I like the Herons, I used to live by a pond and a pair of Blue Herons nested in the swapy area where the springs fed the pond.
