Last weekend I finally was able to get out for some train chasing again. My work schedule has been pretty intense, with something schedule most every weekend, so it was nice to get a full Saturday to go chasing. I also got a heads up on Sunday about an EMD SD70ACe coming through town, which got me out and about pretty quickly. This past week between work and internet service distruptions, I am just now getting the pictures posted and this email out. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoy getting the and posting them.

Sunday, My FIRST SD70ACe to see in person.

Cool to know who the person is behind that KATO ad, that is a great photo, and they used that photo quite a bit, over a couple months. I also have that engine model, they did a great job.

I saw some some of these for the first time on the UP not to long ago moving between the Proviso and Californa yards in Chicago.


Too bad the picture didnít come out better, but what can you do?
