What a wacky night, but the treats were:

1 UP 3985- Steam runs the rails-

Thanks to Dillon Stokes the Sue Line Rails were graced by the pride of the Union Pacific Engine #3985.

Here we see the mighty Union Pacific # 3965 (above, right) blast by a Sue Line local at South Sherwood.

The Union Pacific # 3985 seen is entering the yard area.

The Union Pacific #3985 ends its run in NoLaCRA Yard (above).

5- Things seen Halloween night-

How did they get up there?

 It this place haunted?

How about this place is it haunted?

 This place may not be haunted, but there are some "spirits" here.

How could Halloween be complete without a game of "cow tipping".
