Stacks & Racks-UP 8719 East

I barely set up the tripod when this fast and furious Stack and Rack train blew by Brophy(you can hear me adjusting the tripod and camera). UP 8719 (SD70ACe)led the charge to Clinton, 10 miles away. I gave chase to him at Clarence, IA. Couple slow orders in a couple Form B limits gave me just enough time to spot up at Brophy.
