North-bound train 110 takes the siding at South Sale Creek. I missed the train ahead of him by only a minute or two -- guess I gotta get going earlier.

South-bound train 117 waits on the mainline for 110 to clear the single-track main down to Daisy.

The Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern was recently sold to the Canadian Pacific Railway.

The YKR reporting marks, and this boxcar, belong to Yorkrail, Inc. Interesting green guys on the ends.

Two steel slabs make a load for this old Soo Line "ColorMark" flatcar. Note how the FRA-mandated reflective striping has been applied.

Click Here for a closeup. There were a lot of these steel sheets on this train today. Maybe for shipbuilding?

Train 117 quickly left for Chattanooga, and behind him came this 73Z unit coal train.

Friday, September 7, 2007 - 11:22 AM

With the coal headed south, I made the short drive north to McDonald Farm to see what was coming. The signal there indicated I could expect the 110 before any more south-bound traffic; here he comes.

I more-or-less followed 110 north through Dayton to the golf course at South Evensville. I got there late, but as 110 receded into the distance on the main I saw a headlight approching in the siding. Turned out to be T36, who had some cars for industries in Dayton. He crept up to the signal bridge and waited at a red indication.
Notice the "F" on the frame under the long hood: this guy is not running backwards.

T36 was waiting for train 124. DS told T36 to back onto the main behind 124 once he'd cleared up, and that he had three south-bound trains to run by the two of them before 124 could continue north and T36 could do his work in Dayton.

You used to see this logo on Jet Airplanes, not boxcars. How the mighty have fallen!

Train 175 was the first of three south-bounders, and I caught him from a perch above the track north of North Evensville.

A Dash 8 in Conrail blue leads train 177 south, at the same venue..

A pretty pink boxcar back in the train...

The third south-bound was train 283, and I managed to get ahead of him and set up at North Sale Creek. The light was almost head-on at this point, but would have been better from the other side of the track.

Friday, September 7, 2007 - 2:25 PM

Train 196 was waiting in the Sale Creek siding, and got a green signal almost immediately.
