Valley Park Railfanning 8/30/14

While the cost of the lumber necessary to build the layout is being added up, I decided to write about the latest railfanning trip I made.  This was the end of an era and the beginning of another, because this was the first time I’ve gone railfanning based upon information I gathered from an ATCS monitor installed on my computer.  When I got there, though, I was worried that the info was a false reading, though, because the site where I got it said itself that sometimes it wasn’t reliable.  So I waited, and waited, and waited.  Just as I was about to leave, I happened to glance up and noticed that the signal had finally turned green.  So I waited some more, and was getting worried when the train wasn’t showing up, until the crossing gates finally went down, and the train came.  Another first for my railfanning is that I caught a westbound train on film.  When the first train, eastbound, was passing, I looked up and saw the wb pulling up to wait for it’s turn on the single-tracked main.  Double score!  I think I’ll let the video show you the rest.  Thanks for reading, and, until next time, happy rails!
