I didn't really get my fix with the rather limited photo ops of the mill, and the late-afternoon lighting was so good I hated to abandon it just yet.

I walked across the highway and set off on foot up an old two-track that followed the river upstream a ways.
It was back here, in a quiet little universe that likely sees few human visitors, that I got some of my favorite photographs from today's ride.

Thanks fellas.

The following may bore some/most/but hopefully not all of you to tears. It's nothing more or less than nine minutes of Norfolk Southern sights and sounds, filmed by someone who's obviously got it as bad as me and my new best friend Jamie.

What makes this video extra-special, IMO, is that it was filmed in and around Salisbury, North Carolina (home of the Spencer Shops), it was shot in high-definition (click on 720 or 1080 if your connection will allow), and.......Norfolk Southern 2620 makes a brief cameo at the 1:42 mark.

Crank up the volume, pretend yer a wide-eyed little kid again, and enjoy.

Enjoyable video.

Our development is close to NS tracks here in central Delaware but most of the consists are much smaller than those shown.

Funny thing is, I always have a twinge of disappointment when the locomotive comes into view and it's not a steam engine. You'd think I'd know better by now! Definitely getting old...

Ned, you need to spend a weekend in Cass, West Virginia. :-)

Have been fortunate enough to visit Cass.

Actually, I'm not sure if I'd be more thrilled if I saw a steamer or an EMD F3 - perhaps the latter is SLIGHTLY more likely.

The F3 is a beauty, for sure. :-)

But first............

As I'm scrounging my way along the tracks looking for steel patina, a car pulls up near the RK and a young man gets out. No biggie, except he seemed to be paying a lot of interest in me. I'm 50 or so yards away, minding my own business, and there's plenty else for him to look at, but the dude seemed to be focusing his attention my direction, and I couldn't imagine why.

I wandered back towards the bike, weighted down by all my new-found treasure. As I approached, the young man held up a rusty railroad spike, smiled, and said, "You missed one."

Please meet my new best friend Jamie Sexton:

Thats really cool you got to meet Jamie...Does he by chance allow scheduled visits to his scale train setup? If so PM me his info. I use to be into HO scale trains as well. I still have a few of the locomotives somewhere in storage.
