One of the things that are looked at when judging photos and slides in NMRA contests is excitement. Is the photo exciting? Well, sometimes a photo cannot actually capture the excitement of the moment. For example, when you are sitting outside of a supermarket by the tracks in Anderson Indiana and you look up to see a string (6) of brand new GE units in BNSF orange and green coming at you. You fumble for the point & shoot camera you always carry and...
Ok. So, the picture may not be exciting, but getting it sure was!
On August 19th, I caught CSX MP15 1237 sitting in South Anderson while shooting a few of the newer service additions to the yard. A couple of years later, I was to catch 1237 again, only this time it was at the CSX Big Four Avon Yard.

Of course, what I came to shoot was the Kerosene tank. You can see the EPA has had an effect.
As I turned to go, I couldn't help but notice the ex-CR GP15-1 1541.
On my way out, CSX C40-8W 7791 came through westbound with a long consist. But the day wasn't over yet. As I was virtually home, NS 1437, an ex-CR GP15-1 in fresh NS paint, rolled through the 31st Street Crossing. Not a bad day.
