Very nice shots.  I was at Dakota for the return trip (we gotta do something about those shrubs growing too close to the right of way.)  Wasn't it a perfect day for photography?

Weather better than 2004 (that sucked), but I have a feeling we are going to pay for this day in the coming winter (better make sure the snowblower is tuned).

We're working on the brush. Note that the eastbound only has the one clump left as we ran out of daylight Friday. Westbound was worse and completely filled on Friday evening but we got that at least useable. I thought about Dakota for the return but decided on Donehower West instead. Right call, there was about 10 of us in the main clump basically a who is who of the area/Midwest railfans.
