More of the new Aluminum Coal Hoppers showed up at SA. For the modelers out there, I tried to get shots that you could work from. If you modeled wheels and couplers with red rust like this, no one would believe you!

Hearing that a Wisconsin Central SD45 was in the consist at SA, I slipped over to grab a couple of shots in the snow. I grabbed a shot of WC SD45 #6579 and a couple of CSX C40-8 #7588. The sun was so bright that my front 3/4 shots were wiped out.

TFM 2320 C30-7SN (Transportation Ferroviria Mexicana)
I heard that 359 was at Ridgeway with a TFM Mexican unit in the consist and would work at South Anderson.
Later, I was told that it was now in Union City and had a pickup at SA with the TFM as the 5th unit
Working out an ETA, I guessed it would get to SA between 8:30 PM and 9:00 PM and was ready when it came through into the yard just before 9 PM. As usual the weather was crappy and it was night, but I went anyway. It was like shooting through a cloud.
While at SA, I happened to meet a CSX man with whom I had worked e-mail. It was nice to meet. We exchanged a brief handshake and he went on about his business and I returned home.

CSX 8735 exCR SD60I and CN 2447 lead a string of containers
on CSX number 2 Main at Columbus Ave. Sorry for the poor quality
of the photos. The Sequence Mode looks this way at times. Has to be he angle.

CP Rail 9006 SD40-2F Wide Cab leads a consist of coal hoppers followed by mixed freight westbound across Columbus Ave and past the auto parts dealer. Wait! Isn't that a Grainporter 2000 near the end?

BNSF 4015 Dash 9 44CW leading a southbound NS waits at 29th Street
for clearance into South Anderson.
They don't often pose for me even if it was between two fences.
June 23, 2005 - Early AM South Anderson
Hearing that a westbound setting off at South Anderson had an Illinois Central SD40-2 in Operation Lifesaver paint in the lead, I was passing through when I spotted these South Valley Branch passenger cars parked on a track. They were being transported when one had developed a brake problem and developed flat spots. They were set out in SA waiting to be moved onto the RIP track fro repair.
I found Helm Leasing HLCX 7179 SD40-2 (Ex-BN) as the second unit following the Illinois Central 6018 SD40-2 (Rebuilt SD40A) non-dynamic in Operation Lifesaver paint. Of course, I had to try to shoot into the sun, but I think it came out well.

A CSX train normally run through Chicago was being detoured eastbound through here. I caught it at 32nd and Pitt
and shooting in Sequence Mode, I got UP 5477, a brand new GE ES44AC followed by sister engine UP 5476, another brand new ES44AC. And what's that third unit? it's UP 2002 an SD70M in the Salt Lake 2002 'Olympic Torch' Scheme! And the camera decided it was time to s.a..v...e.... (Arrrggghhh!)

It's 358 Eastbound and there was CSX 1. I shot CSX 2 in April of 2002. Here is CSX 1 AC4400CW, CSX 14 AC4400CW and HLCX 6074 SD40M3.
And about an hour later an NS eastbound came through with UP 7879 SD40-2T on the point
