What's new at the Evergreen Railroad?

We just entered the Twenty First Century with Scotty adding CD and DVD viewing to our members
and guests to enjoy railroad entertainment while viewing the club's activity.  The mighty Heimerdinger's
photos were shown on the big screen today.
The Twenty Century was pretty good to us railfans as it gave us the Great Northern Railroad including the Big Sky Blue era. I miss it more each day.
Keith Wiles must feel the same way to have a 20 car passenger train with all the equipment matching including the locos.
The BN was another Twenty Century loss with the BNSF changing everything. Here we have a Robert
Case set catching up to to a mile long grain train owned by John Schwarze. What is this world coming too?
Member Rod Huffman insisted on this shot as it reflects the real thing that happened near Seattle
with an SUV running into a Sounder commuter train yesterday.  But where's the road?
U boats were not just in the water but we had them in Spokane as well in the form of U25s and U28s
owned by Marvin the Magnificent.  The yellows are factory supplied. I would go with the lead unit color.
Another angle on John's train as it was a pretty long one for sure. John runs the real ones for a living.
