Little Rock trains Sunday June 9, 2013. The day started out sunny, but clouded up by noon. There was a good amount of trains today, and we caught a couple of trains passing each other on UP Main and Main 2 in front of Union Station. NS 8101, the Central of Georgia heritage unit, was on an oil train, the 4th time it's been in this area.  Plus my usual fallen-flag freight cars, an antique purple automobile, and my finally-blooming crape myrtle tree.

Still 10:42 a.m. and yet another train is coming, this one northbound on Main 1. I was hoping I'd get the blue GMTX train passing this one, and barely did.
