The phone rang just after 0700 friday morning with JL On the other end wanting to know if I had plans for the day (which I didnt)...we took a look at the all important weather sites and decided to head South. Hearing a 61N on the radio, I remarked that there was a good chance he would have WC/IC/CN power, and sure enough when we arrived Danville (KY) around 0800 he was fueling at Perryville street with a WC motor head out. We gave chase from Danville to Somerset and got a few keepers, even though the clouds hadn't broken up yet. After loosing him in Stop light city (also known as Someret) we did something totally out of character and headed over to the Corbin to shoot CSX...ill post those shots a little later
