Default Action on the Monon and B&O In Indiana

A group of us spent the 26th and 27th of this month up in Southen Indiana shooting the CSX on the former Monon and B&O mainlines. The trains where scattered out most of the time, but with great weather and lots of Semaphores and B&O style CPL's, the time we spent waiting was well worth it. All of this flat land was a far cry from our usual locations.... Below are links to a few of my favorites from the trip....

Very nice shots.
If you make your way over to that area again (or anywhere in sou. IN) and wouldn't mind another tagalong, please let me know
BTW, you might want to change your spelling to Loogootee before the locals see that
