I had some luck today in my first railfanning trip of the spring. The location: a trackside park in Valley Park, right on the Meramec River. The train: a westbound Union Pacific local freight. I had been thinking that it was time to take to the field again with the mild tempatures of spring, so why not? Besides, I missed the clickety-clack of a train. So I tagged along with my Dad for the Saturday errands, and when we got to the location, it took only about twenty minutes for the train to roll by. With warm tempatures and a train to boot, I think this was a nice way to kick off my spring railfanning for 2014, don’t you? ;). The link to the video is attached to this post. Thanks for reading, and happy rails!
