Tim lives in Dallas, where this is just about all you can see, and was annoyed he traveled a 1000 miles for this?

This is becoming more common place, as my friend John B and I were in Buffalo in September and got a shot of BNSF and UP engines on the lead of CSX freights - in the same shot!  John was also in Cumberland MD this past weekend and in one hour saw freights with single road power consists on CSX freights from BNSF, UP, NS, and CSX.  A few weeks ago in St Paul MN (well, by now, it was in September of 2006), I saw several CP freights with nothing but NS power on the lead.  It's happening more and more - that's why I spent two of my four days in the Twin-Cities area chasing after the short lines - stuff you can't get anywhere but in that region, like the IC&E, ITR, TC&W, and the Minnesota Commercial.... Maybe, one of these days, I'll do a guide for Minneapolis and St. Paul!
