The next action was a north bound empty unit coal train at Broadway Street in Muskogee, OK on June 12, 2012.
I then moved over to Okmulgee Street to get shots of the DPU.

This road consist is first seen through the Court Street overpass before it moves down toward Broadway Street crossing on June 12, 2012.

This train was sitting on the mainline at the South 28th Street crossing at the east end of the Van Buren, AR yard on Aug. 2, 2011.

This southbound freight is seen approaching the Main Street crossing in Van Buren, AR on May 3, 2012.

Between the shots of the sun and the train, I had to change the camera settings from ISO 100 at 1/4000 sec to ISO 1600 at 1/100 sec. At home on my computer, I then had to PhotoShop all of these images, including enhancing the shadows of the train shots.

When I got to Memphis, I decided to spend some time at the Kansas Ave Hot Spot. My first train was this stack/bare-table train with 5-units, only the lead unit was running on May 21, 2012.
