Eastbounds all backed up at Emporia Editors Pick! Contributor's Pick!       
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.
