BNSF 4220 leading passenger cars
Title:  BNSF 4220 leading passenger cars
Description:  My wife and I was exploring the Topeka sub from Emporia to Reading and caught this one and was extremely surprised and happy. It's eastbound so lighting was more difficult in the evening. This is on road 240 where the tracks curve towards Reading KS. This is a real steep grade here and the curve is at the bottom of the hill. Nice photo area.

Title:  Local 71 westbound on Topeka sub
Description:  KCK to Emporia shuttle train running via the Topeka sub instead of the usual Emporia sub. Many trains maybe up to 15 a day reroutes this way because of extensive track maintenace, signal replacement program, and increased traffic levels.

SP 338 as DPU
Title:  SP 338 as DPU
Description:  Westbound loaded Redrock coal train broke down at Lang KS 5miles northeast of Emporia on the Topeka sub. We beat the BNSF responder and AAA Limo yard taxi there and gave the conductor a ride to the DPUs and back to the busted knuckle with another knuckle. We got to see the inside of the locos. I got to go up a real SP unit for the first time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In this day in age you'd think it was a hallucination.
