Question Same loco more than once?

OK, more fun with the database. I just had a photo accepted the other day of NS 9703. I perused my RP.net collection and found another shot where I happened to also capture 9703 in the lead. As a matter of fact, the two photo spots are coincidentally about 1500 feet from each other and the train is even heading in the same direction, but the dates they were taken are more than a year apart. (Apr. '05 and Oct. '06)

Do you have more than one shot of a particular locomotive in your collection (RP.net only), and what are the dates you caught it? (Of course, the further the dates are apart, the more impressive. )

My two shots show how much I think I've improved, as well as how much the site has cracked down on acceptances:

I almost forgot about these, too! Maybe not as impressive, since these locomotives seem to have been in dedicated local service for a while, but the two locations are about 30 miles from each other.

I realize that folks with enormous collections may find themselves searching for a while!

Neat topic, Chuck. Not counting the obvious ones like a shortline that only has one road unit (see my avatar), the only Class I unit I know I got twice was BNSF 8908.

These shots were taken only a hundred or so yards apart. The odd thing is that the shots are 14 months apart and were taken when I was taking a week's vacation in Colorado. BTW, these are the only 2 shots of 8908 in the RP database!

Cool topic! These shots arent too far apart, but they are of one the most famous unit still serving for a freight railroad, my forum name, the IC 6071. This was the first SD40 to be built at EMD:

As FURBALL, short for Freeport Rockford Switcher, back in June of 05 It was really something seing that unit here every day. Hopefully one day, it will return to switch for Freeport.

I have at least 2 of each Amtrak Cascades unit on RP.net, but thats like shooting fish in a barrel since there are only 5 of them and they're on corridor trains...

The unit that seems to 'follow me' the most is CSX 7501. Don't have but one shot of it on here though.

They are both taken within a mile of each other but at least they show the loco working for different operators and with a different paint scheme.
When I get some more time to carry on scanning my slide and negative collection (going back 20+ years) I am sure that there will be a lot more, subject to them getting on RP.

The WC 2500, rivaling with the 6071 for rarest unit of the CN system, has been caught by me soooo many times at New Brighton. But heres the farther apart shots I have on Railpics.

Not on RP is the BNSF 1108 which I shot in Kansas City in 1999. In 2004, I saw it again in Fairburn, Georgia. I also shot an HLCX unit in 1999, don't have the number on me. I shot it on the CSX in Chester, SC. A month or two later, I was going through Kansas and saw the same unit on the UP.

Not exactly on topic, but the most recent and strangest occurance of an engine following me was in June 2005. On our Eastern circle trip in which the "Meridian Speedway" was the main focus, we passed through Birmingham, AL. On June 19th, we were passing through town and saw a westbound manifest behind UP 9377 and NS 3183 go through town also. We caught up to the train a few miles from the AL-MS border. That evening we sat at the Meridian Union Station to eat dinner, we heard a train squawking on the scanner sure enough it was our UP/NS lash-up.

The next day, June 20th, we continue following the KCS line west towards Texarkana. We spent much of the day around the Vicksburg area and didn't get into Louisiana until the afternoon. Again we hear the scanner and believe we hear "UP 9377" we quickly get a visual on the tracks and confirm that there is a train. We sit and wait and again see our "friends". This was becoming a little too strange. We ended the day taking a few shots of the train backing up into the siding at Sibley in sweet light. We highballed it to Texarkana for the night.

The next morning, June 21st, we got up early since it was the longest day of the year, we wanted to make the most of it. We half-heartedly followed the KCS line to Mena. We then meandored to Heavener which we figured would be a good spot to sit and wait for something to chase North or preferably South. We first drove to the KCS engine facility to grab a few photos of the power. As we drove back towards the crossing we noticed a train sitting at the signals in the distance. As we got closer to the crossing by the signals we all gave each other looks of amazement. Once again UP 9377 and NS 3183 were in our presence. About an hour later the train finally got rolling north, but we stuck around hoping for a SB. This would be the last we heard of our 'favorite' UP/NS engines, or would it...

Sometime in early July a report on another forum stated the UP 9377 and NS 3183 had come east on the NS Lehigh Line (the closest main to where I live) on a train to Oak Island. Unfortunately, I had not been out when this happened, I would have loved to see the engines that followed us through 4 states in 3 days again.

Great topic and stories!

None of my encounters are too fraking or specacular, but fun to talk about none the less.

Nothing too abnormal, as I think thos GP28Ms are assigned to the area...still glad he could be there to make my shot better!

Experience #2 is also a local engine, that only runs in Chicago and Indiana, no biggy, but kinda neat.

Here's four instances I found. Caugh the same engine less than a month apart which actually doesn't surprise me since the line running through here is cab signalled and usually the same cab signalled power pools back and forth between Selkirk and Boston.

And then this one of CSX 4844 caught it at the end of Summer 2005 and then again in the spring of '06.

Here's another I forgot about. Nothing spectacular about the little more than a month between sightings as BNSF tends to pool the same power for northern coal, but it's neat because it's a one-and-only paint shceme on EMDX 9085:
