      I don't know why but it fascinates me and is a GREAT distraction

I've put up the Flagstaff live link numerous times.

100-120 trains pass through Flagstaff EVERY DAY.

      Yesterday I found a rail yard where they add cars and build freight trains.

They use a smaller engine called a "switcher" to do it. There's also a guy on a small ATV who runs ahead and behind the switcher physically switching the tracks for the switcher so it can add or remove cars. Quite a process.


Check it out if you're interested. Here's the link.

      The camera sits atop the Harvey House Museum. It pans North and South but the sun rises directly across the tracks so left is North and Right is South.


Into the evening....
