The one thing that holds an (American) train together, for as long as needed, with nearly undying faith to the task. The coupler.

Here we see one on the caboose at Cass, WV during Cass Railfan weekend 2011.

One of my goals on my trip to the American Southwest was to shoot all the BNSF GP60Ms that are based out of Fontana, CA. In this one shot is more GP60Ms than Ive ever seen before. Mission accomplished!

9/22/12: I manage to get to the Racetrack and catch the Pioneer Zephyr IRM excursion to Galesburg... One of my more challenging shots! I'm on the southside of the tracks, away from foamers but an inbound BNSF UCT would block my shot so I race through the pedestrian underpass tunnel and climb the embankment just in time, but the UCT plays hell with my autofocus and the PZ comes racing by on M-2!

NKP 765 rest in the very first light on August 22, 2012 at Bellevue, Ohio. This days deadhead move was the only run without a diesel trailing.

Bellevue was home for most of Nickle Plate Roads Berks so she is right at home where she was 50 years before.

Norfolk Southern's Conrail heritage unit 8098 steps onto the turntable at Spencer, NC for her shining moment of glory. She is surrounded by 19 other friends, in the view is the Lehigh Valley, Monongahela, and original Norfolk Southern Railway heritage units.

The line was thick with railfans as NS spun every engine. I found myself a open spot which happened to be exactly in front of the Conrail heritage unit. I sat down in front of the other railfans and did my shots at a much lower level. This particular shot Im laying on the ground to get this.

A empty coal drag slows as it enters Bellevue, Ohio where it will tie down for the night. You wouldnt know it by this shot but the train is being powered by two Norfolk Southern heritage units, the Reading and Lehigh Valley.

Not really a race. The Union Pacific freight slows to stop as a BNSF intermodal charges up Cajon pass. Activity on this piece of railroad almost always seems heavy.
