View Full Version : Partly Cloudy? Yeah right...

I almost forgot why I don't trust TV weathermen. Yesterday reminded me. What looked like nice, sunny day quickly turned cloudy. However, most of the good power showed up before the clouds. The day started out slow with just a few trains and then a broken rail, but just after noon, Johnny released the hounds out of Danville and a major southbound parade started. A total of 16 trains were viewed, with the photographic highlights as follows.

Hope y'all enjoy, and thanks for looking!

Can you imagine what the world would be like if we all had the accuracy rates of weathermen? :lol:
