Hey guys - the UP business train is parked at Ogilvie on the far west track. Pics to follow. If you visit, be cognizant of the heavy guard and the fact UP is not very cool about pictures. If you decide to take pics, be brief, be discrete.

Hehe, well put. I actually like to take pics from odd angles. It's a different view than the standard 3/4 view roster shot. I've found the ant's-eye view from the back steps at NW station works well. I have a few pics of the power usually idling on the far east track in that view and it looks cool. You get an interesting reflection on the train as well.
