Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

Guess what I just now saw?

Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera set up.

In fact, I wasn't even dressed, for I was fixing to to take a shower.

But, I heard the train coming, so I figured I'd take a quick look, even though I wasn't wearing my glasses.

It was two (02) Union Pacific locomotives, North bound from New Orleans, Louisiana to Mobile, Alabama (and points beyond?) pulling a mixed manifest freight, mostly consisting of autorack cars.

At the very end of that long freight train was - - -


Can you believe it?

Just like the good ol' fashioned days of my boyhood, so long, long, loooong ago!

Not only that, but the caboose was obviously being used, for it had been modernized with an air conditioner unit mounted on its roof!

Ain't that something?

Gosh, gee whillikers, I sure hope some other railfan, somewhere along the line, does get a good video recording of that train.

Thank you.
