Last day of summer
Title:  Last day of summer
Description:  Strong winds from the south have warmed the temperature to ninety in advance of a cold front that will bring rain the next day. UP 1995 is at the re-crew pad east of Fremont with a new crew getting ready to depart for points east. Heritage unit 1995 is on the point, of course, in a well-done acknowledgement of the former C&NWs heritage in the system. Although a few warbonnets linger, how nice it might be for BNSF to adopt UPs effort to recognize elements of its system - with a North Coast Limited inspired scheme, etc. Alas, I understand even the UP heritage units will eventually be relegated to standard armour yellow; thus the striking C&NW colors look resplendent ahead of the classic wings.
