Photo of the Year 2014-2015:

Party Favors 2015 - Volume 1 of 1

The past year was another memorable one. Family came first agin, with the highlight being I have a new nephew, Jeffrey Jr., which just so happens to share my birthday!

Thanksgiving weekend provided an opportunity to travel to Denver, and the "Photo of the Year" was a result that trip which netted 8 of the 36 photos. I have passed by this bridge crossing the Red River many times, but always at the wrong time of day or in poor weather. This time it worked out. I'd have preferred a matched set of new logo BNSF ES44C4's, but at least this is a matched set of C44-9W's, and on my favorite kind of train, an intermodal!

Two trips east in 2014 resulted in some quality railfanning, but not on the BNSF. I did catch one train with BNSF power on the KCS in Rich Mountain AR, which I decided to feature despite the overcast lighting. A third trip east is underway now, and resulted in the last photo. Had I waited 5 minutes longer when I was in a better position, this train may have been tops this year. So either way, it would have been a matched set of C44-9W's on an intermodal.

As usual, there is plenty of the usual Texas action as well. Between poor weather and spending more time taking photos of friends and family, I was fearful that I might not have 36 adequate pix this year. So I made do with a few parked train and DPU going away shots. All's well that ends well!
