The Boron poll

If you are good enough to look at how many days are left, then you would see that the poll is half over. It started at 80 days, and it is now 40. Once again, if you view this blog and are not a robot, please vote on it. It is on the sidebar. It is the first thing from the top on the sidebar.

Up the Tehachapi Grade 2010 part 11

I am rushing to get the series finished before my trip this year up the Tehachapi Grade. Hopefully this time, there will not be any track work.

Arroyo St., Mojave, CA

I did not take any pictures of Arroyo due to it not being found. Here is a link to the crossing from

My day at Richmond St.

We went to a Cajun restaurant last Saturday. It is right next to a crossing.

1st UP Intermodal:

 The 2nd train was no different than the 1st:

3rd train was a UP mixed freight with Norfolk Southern power:

An ATSF woodchip gondola!

On the train list(timetable) on the webcam on the post below, all times are eastern, and I have only seen one on time train ever since yesterday. Also, play the scanner feed, which is right below the cam. ;)

Georgia Webcam

Yes, another webcam with a crossing in it.

This camera is set in Folkston, GA. But, this cam has stricter restrictions. Chrome, Firefox, and Safari(there may be more) are the only browsers that will work with this. INTERNET EXPLORER DOES NOT WORK ON THIS! I don't know whether or not Mac works on this, although I do know that Iphone, Ipod touch, and Ipad don't work on this. There is not sound on this, although the welcome message says that there will be soon. Look at the top of the page. You will see a link that says "train list". Open that up to see what trains they know will come through there. There are no stupid commercials on here! Yes! You can compare the Fostoria, OH one and this one. They both have their negatives and positives. Questions? Comments? Leave a comment!

Some interesting things...

I have been seeing some interesting things on the webcam from a few posts down. Like, girls screaming waiting for a switching train to finish, two trains at the crossing coming through at the same time, countless things!

He estado viendo algunas cosas interesantes en la webcam de unos pocos puestos abajo. Al igual, las niñas gritando esperando un tren de conmutación para terminar, dos trenes en el cruce de las cosas por venir, al mismo tiempo, innumerables!

Spring cleaning

I have just deleted some of the stuff that does not need to be on here. More stuff may be deleted in 55 days(after the Boron poll is finished and deleted). If you are wondering why the post count is lower, than that is why. None of the labels are affected by this.
