Absolutely a great shot, the viaduct reminds me of ancient roman water viaducts.

Trying to get a photo into our company's annual calendar, not have great luck, the locomotives are dirty. And I have to travel 20-30 minutes just to try to snag a window of opportunity, then 20-30 min back. :(

The 2nd shot is from my 150-600 cropped in quite a bit, the train was well off in the distance and in early morning with a ground fog.

Couple that with the fact that NS freight trains are not on a real schedule. They have planned departures, but still don't leave on time. So when you are parked on a busy overpass with the flashers on, you really don't want to be there very long. :)

I spent 3 hours Saturday morning starting at 5:45 on a different track waiting for a Roadrailer train. I wrote the train software the intermodal company uses, and have the system emailing me at 5am on the departure times, allowing me to guess roughly when it would pass the marker I was at. However, what I don't know is when NS sends that train on a different track. Exactly what happened Saturday. :(

I need to tap into the marker events and gain access to those on my phone.

Nice fresh paint on that engine, it looks younger than its 21 years.

Few more images from the Arkansas Railroad Museum. VERY VERY cool place to visit if you are ever in central Arkansas. It occupies the old Cotton Belt (St Louis & Southwestern) engine shop in Pine Bluff AR. The Cotton belt 819 (4-8-4 Steam engine) was actually built there in the shop. they have all kinds of cars, cabooses, MOW, Engines, snow plow etc on display inside the shop. Has an actual working transfer table outside too.

First time I have shot trains with my Fuji system. Trying out how continuous high mode works along with my new Fuji 100-400 zoom.

How is it possible to tell from looking at an engine how old the engine is?

It's not:-) There are other websites that have histories of locomotives. I looked up UP 6819 and found out it was built in 1996. It's a GE AC44CW (AC traction motors, 4,400 horsepower).
