Last Saturday's PRS

madsek01's picture

Last Sat. there was about the same forecast as today, cloudy with a chance of snow/rain. Unlike today, high pressure won out, so with my dad in town we ventured up the hill for a couple sunny shots of the 0730 PRS in the afternoon as it returned to Proctor with ore empties. The B&LE 909 looked nice as a leader as the sun dropped down.

Here after a long wait, the 909 leads ore empties past the crossing at 64th Ave. Some of the rail on the mainline doesn't look great.

Then up to the rest area at Thompson Hill.

0730 PRS Ending Their Day

By the time they reached Spirit Mt. shadows took over the right of way so that was it for the last day of January 2009.
