Unpatched Southern Pacific SP 187 on UP manifest crossing Skunk River, Ames, Iowa
Friday, December 7, 2012, 9:51 AM. This train is the prize of the day. Unpatched Southern Pacific locomotive SP 187 is right behind lead engine UP 7137 on this eastbound Union Pacific mixed freight crossing the bridge over the Skunk River. The video opens with the camera zoomed in on the blank space where the bridge manufacturer's plate has apparently been stolen. There's a similar spot on the north side of the bridge. A little later, that's Rick in the lower left corner shooting the train with my old camera (with no sound). I'll upload that video a little later.
