I post this on a cold winter day and I'm almost sick of it. I agree with Arnold, May is a great time for photography. Light green buds on the trees, spring flowers starting to come up, not too warm, not too cold, and most importantly, little to no weeds have taken hold. 
And of course, what's not to like about old GEXR? This was a throw back consist though, all four axle, LLPX leading, other than the G&W paint could have been 2005 all over again. GEXR 432/1 ran in perfect light both directions, with great EMD motive power, really, what else could you ask for? Oh wait, you mean we had to go out and photograph it, right?  I did. We'll see in time if I did it enough :) You just don't know how good you have it until it's gone...

  1. And all we can do now is appreciate our shots! Hence, why photography is so powerful – it captures a moment in history that might not ever be repeated.
