First up is SB Q129 at Inglefield. Light was not great at this time of the morning.

Headed on north, heard Q595 SB coming through Princeton, so I headed over to Kings siding for a shot.

595 entered on the siding track, so I knew there was a NB coming. I heard Q596 call a clear signal at St. James, so I headed south to Ft. Branch and caught him there
CSX Q596 Ft. Branch IN (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357028207OKKvZJ) Also snapped one as Q595 & Q596 met.

It was north from there to hopefully catch some NS in Princeton. Train 239 got a track warrant, and I caught it at Princeton. Light was bad, so I shot a broadside. NS 283 Princeton IN (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357030365cEdFpH)
Decided to head east to the cut at Depauw. Heard 285 going east, but he had to wait at the Milltown siding for train 375. NS 375 Depauw IN (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357031975wbzasA)
It was a long wait, but 285 finally came east. NS 285 Depauw IN (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357034157ImFNVe)
From there, I should have gone on to Georgetown as there was good sun, but decided to head back west. Not much was moving, but found an east bound and turned around to get it. Never did hear a train # on this one. NS 9861 (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357035572TJMWID)
NS 283 was also coming east, caught it at Huntingburg just before entering the yard. NS 283 Huntingburg IN (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357036646pfGdFV)
The dark clouds in that pic brought some inclimate weather. I headed back to Evansville to meet a friend for dinner. Afterwards, there was intermittent sun so I headed to Howell Yard to see if anything was moving. As I pulled to South Howell I was greeted by 807, a SD80MAC. A brief glimpse of sunlight shows up on the reflective tape in this shot. CSX J777 Evansville IN (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357038309HjnsEh)
I decided to chase this one south, but heard Q128 get a clear signal to come in to Howell. CSX Q128 Evansville IN (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357039551DudjGy)
Headed south and caught back up with 807 at Dogtown CSX J777 Dogtown (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357040650eYitee). It was raining and the sun was shining, but the rainbow didn't pop out until he had passed. This one got stopped at Dogtown, so I knew there were some SB waiting to cross the trestle. I headed to Rahm and caught the Henderson local heading to Howell for a train CSX J724 Rahm IN (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357042740GDGwyW)
As evidenced in that photo, the weather was turning bad in a hurry. Q566 got the signal to cross next. CSX Q566 zoomed (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357043974BXGNnz)
CSX Q566 wider (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357045014DVBbNH)
After 566 passed, there was a parade of trains going south, first is Q595 which I had caught at Kings 11 hours earlier CSX Q595 Rahm IN (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357046131TIgFjV)
A coal train was next, moved away from the track for a different view. CSX V249 Rahm IN (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357047333wcgHgG) and view two CSX V249 #2 (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357048267ZYknHA)

Next across was the J777 local CSX J777 Rahm IN (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357050607ivkXMW)
The wind started picking up, and then the rain came, blowing sideways as J724 came back across with it's train CSX J724 Rahm IN (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357052084cISTKo)
Headed back up to north Howell and caught Q597 coming in. Did a hand held 1600 ISO to catch him. CSX Q597 Evansville IN (http://community.webshots.com/photo/357024521/357052871aYdDfJ)
There were 3 more trains coming in, but the weather was getting too bad to endure, so I called it a day.
