My weekend... is a free Model Railroad Discussion Forum and photo gallery. We cover all scales and sizes of model railroads. Whether you're a master model railroader or just getting started, you'll find something of interest here.

Instead of hi-jacking the WPF, I'm posting here, just some samples, the rest of the good shots are over on RRF (well will be...). I took just over 300 pictures between the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd of Sept.


Nice pictures Josh,

What's that unit train in the first shot carrying? Steel coils or some sort? I assume they're pretty heavy since they're centered over each truck.

Nice photos, Josh, and I would say very nicely composed. Ya gotta love those wide expanses and big sky.

Very very very very nice!:D

I wonder is that coiled steel being imported from somewhere...?
More like Exported, thats a west bound train to LA/LB harbours...

Very similar to what I saw in El Paso last May. Where are these taken? You mentioned the Colorado River.
The California/Arizona border, near Needles CA, just down river from Golden Shores AZ. I was shooting about 20 miles up the river from Lake Havasu ;) .
