Return of the jacket guys

Years ago SRG and I decided to shoot the Dakota & Iowa and anything else we could find near Sioux Falls. As we picked up a DAIR train coming coming off the Beresford line at Hawarden, we heard an interesting conversation between the conductor and dispatcher. In it the conductor asked for "a couple of straight jackets for these guys up here." Our response? You think we're nuts, we'll show you nuts! We shot that train 17 times til the light ran out near Sioux City. And so on 11/15/2015 we again donned our straight jackets and shot this train a dozen times til the light ran out at Edgerton.
