HiDef: UP 844 and UP 1982 Leads the Little Rock Express


I am proud to say that I have finally caught Union Pacific 844. Legsbluetrain and I drove 5 hours up to Poplar Bluff, MO to intercept UP 844 and the Little Rock Express. When we got there, it had already arrived and it was backing into the Amtrak station in which it stayed there for about two hours. We made sure to leave at least an hour before it did so that we could find a location to catch it at. We ended up going to Neelyville, MO. The whole chase was very very crowded with other railfans. The first shot was done in Neelyville. I used my two cameras to catch it there. After it passed, we rushed back across the state line to Corning, AR to catch it again. Luckily, it had to stop there and wait on a northbound coal train. I also decided to film the coal train’s arrival and the meet. After the Coal train cleared, I recorded 844’s departure from Corning. After that point, it was very very hard to keep up with the ol’ girl. It didn’t help any that the road left the tracks for a while. When the road finally came back to the tracks, 844 was at least 3 miles or so ahead of us. We had to do some serious “booking”. We managed to get ahead of it and I was barely able to catch it at a rural crossing south of Knobel, AR. I had no time to set up a tripod there. It ended up making another whistle stop in Walnut Ridge, AR so that gave us plenty of time to get ahead of it again. We then caught it in Alicia, AR. I used two cameras at that location also. After passing through Alicia, it

India: Running out of Steam (part 3) – The Little Tibetan Terrier


These are excerpts from National Geographic’s “The Great Indian Railway”(1995), probably the best documentary ever on the Indian Railways. As a young boy, I used to travel to Grandma’s place by the Howrah Mail from Madras. In 1989, on one such trip, My dad pointed out to a gigantic engine puffing smoke in the shed at Madras central as our train was leaving and said: “Manu, look, that’s a steam engine”. I forgot about steam engines later. In 1999(10 years later), I watched the National Geographic’s special screening of this documentary on TV. I remembered my encounter with the puffing beasts in 1989. I couldn’t stop crying by the end of this documentary. Starting in the early 80’s the Steam engines of the Indian Railways have been slowly phased out of all the main lines in favor of Electric and Diesel locomotives due to economic pressures. By the turn of the 90’s, it had become a rare sight to see a Steam-driven train. You can buy the DVD or VHS of this 115 minute documentary on nationalgeographic.com. It costs $15 including US local postage.
