Eastbounds all backed up at Emporia
Title:  Eastbounds all backed up at Emporia
Description:  BNSF 7031 east stops for the signal at Merrick then BNSF 147 also stops while waiting for BNSF 5089 east to go by. All three line up to go to the Topeka sub as all eastbounds were being rerouted that way because of track maintenance. Many eastbound were getting back up at Emporia on the Emporia sub and all the way to Topeka on the Topeka sub that morining. This is a rare photo opportunity.

Somewhere beyond the pretty flowers is a train.
Title:  Somewhere beyond the pretty flowers is a train.
Description:  its a real chore to photograph sunflowers and trains and have them come out right. this is my best work yet. flowers do best when they're at track level or higher but most places the tracks are higher putting the flowers away from the trains and the viewfinder. Plus in Lyon Co its harder as there is a sunflower shortage because of spraying, mowing, planting, etc. but this is chase co here in this photo.
