La Plata Railfan Event Day 3 4/8/2014



by Chris Guenzler



I woke up at 5:45 AM and after my morning preperations, I printed my corrections that Elizabeth sent me and put them in the story from yesterday before I had my breakfast. I ran the disc cleaner through the CD player in the rental car. I then met everyone in the lobby before we left. We drove out to the town of Revere.









BNSF 6988 West from Route C bridge in Revere. From here we went to the next bridge just to the west of our previous location.





Here I did me and my shadows.





Our group minus Winston at this bridge.









BNSF 6932 West at the bridge just west of Revere. From here we made a stop at Casey's before we got on US Highway 136 west then stopped at Medill.

Union Pacific 8530 East at Kenwood. From here we went to Kirksville where I learned that the KFC had closed so I went to Wing Thing to get some chicken to go and then drove back to the Depot Inn & Suites. I wrote the story then relaxed the rest of the day. I watched NCIS then took my sauna bath and called it a night.
