I had planned a trip up to the CSX LCL Subdivision once again, but swung by the nearby Main Line Subdivision south of Louisville to snag a few trains, one being led by a CP widecab as well as R.J. Corman's aluminum ingot train with a former DRGW tunnel motor leading. The shot with the UP locomotive leading a train around the curve near Campbellsburg was a shot I'd been wanting, and I'm glad I got it, as the hill I was standing on has now been leveled for better driver(automotive) visibility.

The final day of my vacation saw my friend and I head back up to the LCL Subdivision once again. We were quite surprised to find the HLCX 4-axle locomotive leading a road train, as that typically doesn't happen on modern day class 1 railroads. We ended up chasing it south before calling it a day.

I managed to photograph nearly 60 freight trains during my week off from work. It's something I'd like to do again with another vacation at some point... (I hope soon!)

I hope you do, too, if it means another great set of pics like that!

Unfortunately at the moment, none of us are going anywhere!  :(
