This is a real "red letter day" for the Sue Line Crew as Joseph Ryan Kamm was born this morning to my youngest son, Joseph (below, left), and his wife, Rebecca (below, right).


With that said, now on to the trains.

TRAIN 310- A SOUTHBOUND FROM
SHREVEPORT TO UNDERWORLD...

Not all trains cover long distances on the Sue Line.
One train that does not go very far is Train 310.


We first see Train 310, a southbound express freight from
Shreveport to Underworld, in Shreveport on the rearmost track.



As Train 310, a southbound express freight from Shreveport to Underworld,
leaves it passes an old and F-7 from the "other" Sue Line.



Train 310, a southbound express freight from

Instead of following the mainline, Train 310,
a southbound express freight from Shreveport to Underworld,
takes the diverging route to Underworld.
