Title:  Eastbound UP Yard Job Train
Description:  Rolling up to Montgall Avenue at the west end of UP Neff Yard is UP Train YKC75 24 with a transfer from BNSF Murray Yard. I had just witnessed this same train running north through Santa Fe Jct. 4 hours earlier when it was still a BNSF train.

Well Deserved Night Off
Title:  Well Deserved Night Off
Description:  The "double power", used on KCT Jobs 310 and 311 usually have the day off on Saturday, and the 1507 will have the night and part of tomorrow off. 1507 is the regular unit for the 217, and is used on the 105 Saturday and Sunday, and sometimes in the morning during the week. As you can probably tell, all 3 of these are veteran Southern Pacific units.

How Many More
Title:  How Many More
Description:  How many more nights will these signals spin under the stars? How many more trains will be lined up using them? How many more photos will be taken of them in service? Probably not many of any of those things. The replacements are already up, set about 2 feet out of the frame to the left. Their days guarding CP Bravo on the BNSF Ft. Scott Sub. are numbered.
