Eric, don't they refurbish A1's over at the Anniston Depot?
I'm not sure, but wouldn't be surprised.

I'd love to get a guided tour of an Abrams some day. I've got a buddy that was a tanker in the Guard some years ago. I wonder if he still has any contacts...

CJ, Obviously, some people are jealous of my good looks and boyish charm. :D

Some new pics from the CSX in booming Trafford, Al.

While driving thru, we noticed that the searchlight showed "approach'. Hum, that baby is approach lit. Could a train be coming???;)

It wasn't long until this intermodal came blazing thru on the previous train's yellow block.

Steve, Nice SD40-2. The Conrail units do look good!

Rex, Thanks. I'll keep the camera close by. I'd like to get in some more exploring before the hot weather sets in. ;)
