Before I left Enid I had one more thing to do.





The Enid Santa Fe station.





I had always loved that Santa Fe symbol. From here I headed west on US 60 towards Quilan.





Two views along my route on US 60. I made it to Quilin Road and stopped at the first bridge on Curtis Hill.







BNSF 7002 west at the first bridge on Curtis Hill. The birds were really something here so I moved to the second bridge.







BNSF 7164 East at the second bridge. My hat flew off my head down to the tracks so I had to climb down and then up to get it.







BNSF 6694 West at the second bridge.











BNSF 4596 east at the second bridge. The birds were crazy here too. I continued east exploring Curtis Hill.





A BNSF eastbound on the east side of Curtis Hill.







CREX 1344 east at Avard Road. I went back to bridge one and waited.









BNSF 8227 east at bridge one on Curtis Hill.







BNSF 1992 east was my last train at bridge one on Curtis Hill. From here I drove to Woodward and found everything I wanted there.





Northwestern Oklahoma 1401.





Northwestern Oklahoma LTEX 1211.





The WF&NW station in Woodward. From here I went to Carl's Junior for dinner then to the Sand Inn & Suites. I worked on the story before calling it a night.
