Album Info:As the Patchman continued his grim and relentless pursuit in 2003, I attempted to shoot every remaining engine still in C&NW colors, whether running on the UP or in service elsewhere. This was not an attempt to get prize-winning shots but only to catch these engines in classic C&NW locations while still possible. Anywhere in the Midwest was fair game on the chase, as you will note in the variety of locations. I had to take them as they were presented, including as trailing units and on cloudy days. Check back as I will add to this album frequently.
