Three of us piled in the extended cab truck and went out to enjoy the
sunshine and primarily search for three main trains and take what ever else
we could find along the way. The morning was slow, but picked up after
lunch, as well as we picked up another railfanner and truck. Below are
links to some of the images from the day.

NS 143, one of the main trains, had a brand new BNSF GEVO with the new BNSF
logo and paint. Unfortunately, it rammed a trailer (no one hurt that we
know of, thank goodness), which slowed down traffic in both directions, and
delayed 143 even more. We did see them at the Wye as they were turning the
engines, since the front conductor side steps were seriously damaged.
