Happen to catch Alabama Southern's "Pulling for the Tide" GP35's returning from
morning switching duties at Nucor Steel. This is the first time since being
repainted that I have been able to catch them on the move. I hung around the ABS
yard and shot some flat switching. Nice to hear those EMD's and old horns.

Took the train to New Orleans this past weekend. What a great trip! Traveled coach on the way down and roomette on the way back. Both trains were on time and had no problems.

Got the heads up via twitter this morning that 156 was on the point of Train 19 with private varnish on the rear. This is my favorite scheme so I waited all day to catch it. It was running 2 hours late when it arrived in Tuscaloosa so the sun was not my friend but I shot video and pictures anyway. Now all I need is a picture of the Phase II unit and my collection will be complete.

Rode up to the North and of the AGS South today to see what I could catch. Among other trains I got Train 19 at speed through Lipscomb with three private cars then Train 20 at speed through Bessemer with Heritage Unit 156. Watch the video but don't blink or you will miss them.

I caught NS 345 at Woodstock on my way back to Tuscaloosa. After shooting a quick video I chased it to Tuscaloosa stopping at Echo Lake crossing to see if I could get a shot (I did, just barely). Hauled ass to Kicker Road for the last shot all on October 14, 2011 in less than 40 minutes with afternoon traffic to deal with. My new motorcycle is proving itself worthy of chasing!
