Having posted some pictures to my Flickr account a couple of days ago, I was looking through older images and came across this one, of BNSF 1663 in Superior a couple of years ago (January 20, 2014, to be exact). While not an interesting shot, it is the first one I took with my latest Pentax, which makes it a little special to me. 

Which brings me to New Year's Eve, 2015. While a bunch of us were waiting for BNSF to head for Northtown with a special movement of refinery equipment, we had the chance to shoot the Rapids Local as it left town. Turns out the lead unit was familiar. 

It's little things like this that make railfanning such an interesting hobby to me. And the only way to make them happen is to keep looking for trains!
