Fellow Foamers, UNITE!
So let me me brief with this: I live in the Kansas City area. KC is the second largest rail hub on the North American continent in total rail traffic, but is by-and-large the busiest in terms of total tonnage moved annually.
Whatever, semantics. Bottom line: it's busy here. Any given day of any week out of the year features dozens of places across the metropolitan area that showcase railroad action from several Class 1 railroads that stretch to both coasts of the US (BNSF, UP, KCS, CSX, NS, DM&E, etc.). Several of you can attest to this (acela, The-Stealth-Ninja, Railphotos, HerrDrayer, xk1llxy0urselfx).
Knowing this, I'd kind of like to get a group of us together sometime this summer and have an informal "KC FoamFest" or something like that. Two, maybe three days of a handful of us out shooting the action around town, maybe have a barbecue at the end, drink some beers, and shoot the shit.
Also, on a side note: I've put together a map on Google of all the locations I've shot at, and plan to shoot at in the future. You can see that Here.
Thoughts and ideas?
