In the next 3 weeks, I'm making trips to cover several railroad-related events. The first is 24 Hours @ Saginaw, a railroad photography event near Ft. Worth, Texas. Then, late next week, I'm heading to North Carolina to team up with the Trains Magazine staff to provide live coverage of the 611's debut and first passenger trip to Roanoke, Virginia. If you can't make the event in person, be sure to watch the live stream on Trains Magazine's web site--guess who will be the one running the camera! The week after that, I'll be headed to Nebraska for the Union Pacific/Chicago Northwestern Historical Societies' conference.
I'll be posting updates from all three events here and on F-O-F's Facebook pace, but such a busy schedule means that there just isn't enough time to keep to the normal schedule of posting an article every two weeks. It will be roughly 3 weeks before I get the second article about diesel locomotive preservation posted and followup on the takeaway from the Amtrak crash.
