Union Pacific freight train symbol NPMIZ at Archer, WY

As I was driving north from Denver on Interstate 25 a couple passed my old Chevy station wagon and saw the JAARS sticker on the back. They slowed down and rolled down their passenger window and we tried talking as we drove along at 65mph. We quickly decided to stop and have a more normal conversation. I told them that my father in law was with JAARS and that my wife and I were with Wycliffe. I told them I was on a train chasing trip and that I would be spending some time in Cheyenne and probably spend the night sleeping in the car. They said that they lived in Cheyenne and that I could stay at their house and go to church with them in the morning. From previous trips to the area I knew how hard it was to get to sleep when the wind shakes the car all night long so I gladly accepted their offer. After taking these pictures at Archer, I drove back into Cheyenne to call them and get directions to their house. It turned out that their house is about a half mile from where I took these pictures. I could see the coffee pot water tank in the shot below from their front porch. Engines 9129, 3158, and 9330 lead train NPMIZ under the old US 30 bridge and through Archer on May 16, 1992.
