Default Tunnel Exploration, UP Grime, and a Major Golf Foxtrot

A few weeks ago, a couple of friends and I hiked along the old CNO&TP right of way near Sloans Valley, KY to check out tunnels 7, 8, and 9. These were bypassed in 1963 by a line change about a half mile or so to the west. It was almost a surreal feeling walking through the old tunnels and hearing trains climb the hill towards Greenwood. I put a page together this morning which also includes a few photos from old Burnside. You can check it out by clicking the link below.

For trains, keep reading...

The night before the aforementioned exploration, we also did some night photography of T19's power. They had an ex-Southern SD40-2 that week, and that's only the third time I can remember T19 having 6-axle power. I only had one shot that turned out halfway decent.

Also, during the day of the exploration, the sun managed to pop out through a few sucker holes here and there. We sat at Keno for a few minutes and managed to watch a few go by. 215 had a pair of UP motors. Not only did I shoot it, but the shot totally sucked as well. Even worse, I actually uploaded it for all the world to see. It is official: I need to have my head examined.

That's all I've got for this round. Be sure and check out the blog for more entertainment. Until next time, I hope y'all enjoy and thanks for looking!
