Two DMO Encounters

January 13 and February 10


Tuesday, January 13

The westbound Des Moines branch local came through Pleasantville with an interesting set of locos.  In the lead was CEFX 1022, followed by an "Oakway", EMD 9048, and ex-Santa Fe BNSF 8223.

Tuesday, February 10

Today's eastbound (we're down to three trains a week now) had the usual long string of diesel fuel tankers followed by a mixed train of covered hoppers and other manifest cars.  In the lead were BNSF 1066 and BNSF 6102.
