went to Union Station in Little Rock at 6:20 a.m. to walk my mile and a
half and got this shot of the moon. I then drove to Brinkley (55 miles)
LEFT-A light engine move, headed by UP 9794, scared the birds. You can see the moon. RIGHT-Moon and signals and birds.
LEFT-In Brinkley at 8:43 a.m. on the sunny side of the tracks. KCS Belle 4709 showed, heading a short mixed train. RIGHT-Passing
the depot museum. Note the bird upper right and the tree shadow on
4709. At this time of day, it's hard NOT to get a bird in a photo
around Brinkley, which is next to the Cache and White
River National Wildlife Refuges and a cypress swamp.
LEFT-Back on the 'wrong' backlit side of the tracks (I need to be in the museum for visitors). UP 4231 arrives at 10:06 a.m. RIGHT-UP 6468, 11:12 a.m.
LEFT-There was a DPU on this mixed train, UP 7306. RIGHT-NS 9361 and 9547, 11:29 a.m. LEFT-Illinois Central hi-cube. RIGHT-CSX hi-cube.
LEFT-UP 5214, 11:55 a.m. RIGHT-UP 6641, 1:19 p.m.
DPU, UP 6812, the second DPU on a mixed freight today. They both were quite long.
LEFT-UP 9485, 2:15 p.m. looking north with max zoom (18x). RIGHT-Crape Myrtles and UP 9485.
LEFT-This swampy area is located next to the museum property to the north. RIGHT-Two shiny NS units, 9905 and 8458.
