Sunday, Emmett, Steve, and I found ourselves trackside in and around Danville once again. The day started with a copius amount of fog from the nearby Kentucky River, but it burnt off quickly the sun shone beautifully the rest of the day. In a ten hour period, 18 trains were seen, including the NS Track Geometry Train tied down in Danville. The highlights from yesterday are in order as follows.
