Heritage in Motion

Today I heard a train coming by somewhat slowly and had a peek out the window. I'm glad the train was moving slowly (it was taking the siding) because that gave me enough time to grab my phone and get the camera activated.

UP Katy Heritage Unit

Union Pacific has created a "heritage" fleet of locomotives painted in the schemes of all of their predecessor railroads. UP 1998 (numbered for the year it merged into the larger railroad) hearkens back to the Missouri-Kansas-Texas, known as the "Katy."

That was one of the few breaks I had today. I had something that needed extra hours this afternoon, and it's just as well because I have to take Lisa to the dentist in Reno on Thursday and thus I needed to log some extra time by then anyway.
