Let's go home
Title:  Let's go home
Description:  Amory/Magnolia is just south of Columbus heading north to Amory. The picture is slightly blurred because I wasn't sure how to use my new camera at the time. The road to the right is the old Pickensville Rd. The crossing was relocated about 50 yards further down from the original xing after the road was realigned in 1999. The white building down the road you see is painted up light blue with dark blue trim now. Can you say CSX?

3 engines and last unit for the 656
Title:  3 engines and last unit for the 656
Description:  Job 852, the Amory - Columbus local, set out the 2764 for the 656 Job. I was hoping it would be the 2904, a pure BN unit with no paint outs or stupid stick on letter/numbers especially since this would be the last unit used on the 656 Job before it was abolished after the AGR take over of the line from Columbus southward.

That classic ATSF look.
Title:  That classic ATSF look.
Description:  One of the few paint schemes that holds up well under a cloudy sky. As a child I had seen this in books and painted on the train sets I would play with. There was just something about that scheme that felt like royalty. Now 15 or so years later this was my first time to meet the face in person. This scheme will dissapear over time. My 90 Cougar to the left already has. The 560 still soldiers on.

"Last" BNSF train into Columbus
Title:  "Last" BNSF train into Columbus
Description:  This would prove to be the last BNSF operating on the BNSF line from Columbus, Ms to Magnolia, Al. The next day that portion of the line would be sold to the Alabama Gulf Coast Ry. Fittingly, an ex BN is in the lead of this last NB train. Now, the AGR would have a complete run from Columbus to the Gulf Coast. BNSF still runs into Columbus with the 852 local.

Catching a breeze
Title:  Catching a breeze
Description:  The BNSF 852 local comes into Columbus with the 2172. The brakewoman has the door opened so she and her conductor can enjoy a cool breeze for a moment. They scoped me out a bit until I told them I wasn't a weed weasel. Just kind of reminds me of myself at work how if everything were done strictly by the book you'd either be there all day or you'd get nothing done.
