Well I finally got all my images and a complete trip report done for my recent trip that took me through the Needles Sub and the whole Seligman Sub. There were also side trips to Sedona, the Grand Canyon and even some action on the Phoenix Sub.

The trip was 6 days long, 1776 miles traveled and over 1200 photos taken. Here I have narrowed it down to the better photos and made a timeline and story to go along with each days events. The trip was amazing and the amount of rail I was able to follow was just awesome. So if you're interested here's the link to my story, it is quite long so be prepared!

Amazing report, there is however one downside, I am EXTREMELY jealous. Not only did you get some great train shots but the scenery and weather shots are absolutely beautiful as well. Congrats on a successful trip albeit tiring, but it sounds well worth it. Lookin forward to the next one, Dave!!! I still am very jealous though.

Thanks Andrew. It was a special trip for me and I want others to try and get something out of it that I did.

Enjoyed the story line, i didnt realize that the cozier canyon would be that hard to get into. I want to get up there soon, but i dont really know if i want to go from Kingman to flag or flag to NM, but that was nice to see everything, i made great use of your road condition reports.
Thanks

Nice report and shots! That dry desert look is so in these days. The single NS loco is my fav pic for some reason. And I love that pic of you on the main page; a man with a plan.

I think I may have covered more miles in my RR trip to Montana, but you beat me on pics.
