This past Sunday I headed out alone to the South. I found lots of clouds
when I found trains and I found sun when there were no trains. After four
hours of that fun I went home and deleted what pitiful few pictures I had
taken. Just after I did that, EMB called and asked what I was doing,
which means get you butt in gear, something good is coming. Thanks to
EMB, I caught my first ever BN Executive Green/Creme engine, several times.

I was able to shake free and go out in search of trains a week ago
Saturday, and the trains were scarce. I got a little bit of a late start,
but NS made up for it by sending all the morning southbounds earlier than
normal. South of Somerset I saw 1 NB and 1 SB about 9:00, 1 NB and 1 SB
about 12:30, 1 NB and 2 SB about 3:00, the caught two SB about 4:00ish and
called it a day. Below are the only keepers:
