Because it was raining here all day, I left about 4:30 for what turned out to be an indoor barbecue because of the weather. Rain let up for just enough time to let off some fireworks

The CSX shot is outstanding. The NS shot isn't anything to write home about, though.

They just don't like you, Troy.

That sucks. Beautiful weather here, but I was confined to my bed all day with some kind of stomach virus (diarrhea, vomiting, fever...it was horrible!) Worst 4th ever.

Despite the weather, had a great time. Rain let up about 8p which was time enough to make it down to the beach and watch fireworks. Where we go, is right on the gulf and inbetween 4 beach communities displays, so you get 4 for 1. Then an hour drive back for about 8 miles distance, lol, then about an hour drive home at 10:30 through "the gaunltlet" of FHP and local police. I got today off too.

Thank you Ron, that one did finally get in after a little more work.

I have another frame where the lead locomotive is a little more forward toward the crossing.
C'mon, Troy, you have a weed obstructing the third wheel in the lead truck of the lead unit! Can't you see this? You are calling out an RP screener about this? What are you thinking ??????????????????????????????

I just blew it up 1000% and there are no weeds obstructing anything on either of the locomotives

Troy my friend I admire your persistence. I hope you don't have to go the same nut roll as the last few.

You couldn't tell I was joking, you bothered to do this?

For the record, I see a weed going up and intersecting the wheel I describe, two light colored spots, presumably some sort of tiny blooms. Looking at the alignment, they are not bright areas next to the wheel, they are actually something in front of the wheel. I only went 400x to verify, I don't have 1000x in my browser.

How many trains typically run through Clinchport? I'd imagine the CSX trestle is busier, but having never been there, what could I epxect to see on a normal day?

In my experience, probably 20 total these days. Coal is down on both railroads. Last time I was up there in October, I saw7 in daylight. Admittedly I believe that was a slow day.
