Default UP Excursion Dates Released!

http://www.up.com/aboutup/special_tr.../details.shtml
The UP has finally announced details about its "Great Excursion Adventure" trip. It looks like it will contain a lot of layovers and overnight stays. I will be chasing from Marysville, KS, to Kansas City on the 29. Then I will be chasing the next Saturday between St. Louis and Cape Girardeau.

I hope I can get a good shot of the 844 crossing the Mississippi River at Thebes, but of course the sun will be high. Still, it will be an awesome couple of weekends!

Looks like I'm going to have to make a special trip back to Saint Louis for that. I was really hoping it would take the Chicago route, but at least its still going through Illinois.

I am SO excited! It is coming through Muskogee again. I am working out the place I want to shoot it.

This sucks because I have a ton of commitments during that timeframe, a month earlier or later and I could do it. Is this it for the summer?

Troy- So far, this is all they have planned for this year. It would be a shame that this would be it, but I shouldn't be complaining.
