L&D action, New Iberia and Abbeville -- 24-26 September 2019

James Robichaux
 

Here are three sets of images made one year ago yesterday-today-tomorrow, all of action of the Louisiana & Delta Railroad, in New Iberia and, later, Abbeville.

One year ago yesterday, I photographed some interesting (to me) action in New Iberia:

One year ago yesterday, I photographed some somewhat-less-interesting (to me) action in New Iberia:

One year ago tomorrow, I made this large set of images in Abbeville at the end of the since-closed branch to Abbeville as the rice mill there, which closed earlier this year, got served:

Thanks for looking!

When new meets Old

Nathan Herring
 

Hello all,

I made plans to head out yesterday after the 2nd morning Z out of Alliance, TX when I saw it was led by brand new ET44C4 3678, even more interesting was SD70MAC 9675 running second which is still in its Burlington Northern Executive Scheme

I caught the train (ZALTSTO924L) coming into Amarillo on Red River Valley Main 2 at CP 3294 or Airport as its known to the railroaders.


I then headed down to Canyon, as I wanted to catch the train again. 

A Willow Springs, IL to Phoenix, AZ Z train (ZWSPPHX923L) smokes it up as it starts up again before passing the Santa Fe Depot in Canyon after waiting for traffic ahead at CP Canyon.


About 2 hours after my first catch of the train, BNSF 3678 and team are rolling west through Lubbock Jct in Canyon, after getting a fresh crew in Amarillo.


It was a very productive 2 and a half hours I managed to get a lot more on video, that will be out next week.

Thanks for looking.
Nathan

I wanted to let everyone know that we are continuing to ship out orders of my new Rock Island book. It's been really difficult on us recently and we have had to juggle getting a few shipments out each day while managing my mother-in-law's stage 4 cancer at the hospital and later at Hospice.

Marsha's mom finally passed away yesterday morning at 4:36 AM.

I will continue to bubble wrap, box up and ship out orders the best that I can. Please be patient with me. I'm mailing out books in the order they were received and I've probably got around 30-40 more to get out.

Christmas came early this year!  Yesterday I received Steve Goen's new book on
Rock Island passenger trains of Texas.  For those like me who thought his Cotton
Belt book could not be topped, be prepared to learn he outdid himself in his second
book in the series.
The long reach of Steve's resources and contacts have yielded a liber mirabilis in terms
of the information and images included within the pages of the book. Moreover, Steve has
set a gold standard in terms of a layout style to be repeated in future books. 
What's next?  Fort Worth & Denver (including its role in the B-RI)
Huzzah!  Huzzah!

A Quick Outing

Nathan Herring
 

Went out Tuesday with a friend who was in town to show him around.

We started off down in Canyon at the old Santa Fe Depot with an Atlanta bound QLACATG613V


Moved west of town to the Dowell Rd crossing for a couple of trains

First was an Alliance bound stack train (SLHGALT112A)


A few minutes later, an ultra hot Los Angles bound Z (ZWSPLAC914U) came racing through.


Our short amount of time was running out but we caught the 6577 again after it’s crew change rolling into South Pass on the Red River Valley Sub to meet a couple of westbounds.


Thanks for looking, I also have videos of the first 3 but they will come out towards the end of the month.

OK folks, please bare with me thru this.

Marsha's mother has terminal cancer and has been in the hospital for two weeks. Today they decided that they are moving her to Hospice tomorrow. So our plans for the weekend at Temple have drastically changed as a result.

We have decided that Marsha will remain in Wichita Falls this weekend to be with her. Since I still can't drive, the girls have decided to pinch hit for her and will be bringing me to the show as well as man our tables and handle sales.

Please be advised that we will be there SATURDAY ONLY. So if you want a copy of my new Rock Island book please come see us on Saturday.

I'm sorry if this causes any inconvenience to anyone.
