These are the blogs of a man going where others have gone before. Trains are watched, cities photographed, and the past bravely explored as much as the future. Day trips, overnighters, vacations, and family visits are all opportunities for everything from trains to cityscapes to landscapes to ..... Other railroad videos and slideshows are on my YouTube Channel at gcm100x. If you would like to contribute to this blog, do so at http://paypal.me/Gregory643.
I decide that it was a day for chasing trains. I went to Lilesville, NC and explored the railroad crossing. I got word on the scanner of a train eastbound. I heard the horn and got into position. I than ran to the next crossing and found the train stopped there. However, there was another train passing it. I chased it to Hamlet (the next video). In Hamlet a little later there was the first train. I finally made its way east, 6 hours later.
I did chase this train into Hamlet, with three strops between Lilesville and Hamlet.
