Rock Train by classictrains Rock Train by classictrains
A solid train of special cars loaded with crushed rock creeps south under I-235 and over University Boulevard on the East side of Des Moines.

It was baking hot and 1/2 mile ahead of this train a UP cop is looking for "a guy in a dark shirt messing around the diamond" where the North-South line crosses over the West lead to Shortline Yard.

This cab is one of many units equipped with a camera for capturing pictures of idiots doing stupid things. I wonder how many pictures of me "Uncle Pete" has.

Sounds like a good way to do it! Although some rail fans can get a bit creepy, as long as they keep out of the way, don't ask stupid questions when i'm trying to work (like when we have to push the button at the crossing in Rochelle) and as long as they are safe, i and most other rails won't report them. It's the guys that get between the crossing gate and the tracks to take photos, or walk across the tracks to take close ups, that we will report them. I wish more people used some common sense like that!
