It's April 12th again, and that means Party Favors!

Once again, it's time for some party favors. I'm almost as organized as last year, so get them while they're hot!

This year's railfan trip was a short and sweet visit to New Mexico. I've wanted to get to a certain spot in Abo Canyon, but it's off limits for good reason these days. With a solid month of planning, I was able to make some key contacts and arrange a short visit. The Cumbres and Toltec was a fun distraction too, but BNSF was my big fish and while I didn't sample many locations I got what I had my heart set on. It took patience and a few tries to get the light I hoped for, but eventually the weather cooperated. I'll settle for the half shadowed nose on BNSF 7584 as the rest of the scene is just as I'd hoped to capture it.

A few the Texas photos are a bit different, as February 11, 2010 brought record snowfall. I didn't get any BNSF action as the snow fell, but picked up a yard scene and the two following days got a few action shots. When snow is on the ground, I'll relax my usual sunny day only mindset just a little.
