Saturday, April 12, 2008, ASMR members travelled to Fort Worth to the home of modeller Jim Norwood. On the way, they stopped at the BNSF Yard at Saginaw.
A wide assortment of paint schemes are on display, from ATSF blue "Warbonnet"...

ASMR members enjoyed the camaraderie and the spring sunshine. Photo by Jim Gibson.
