    Some photos of my railfanning around the East Bay

    Thread Starter: Itsed65

    I live in Pinole CA, so I am pretty fortunate to live very close to some great areas to watch trains. I am constantly, if not always successfully, trying to improve my photographic skills, and with the great weather we have had lately around these parts, I have been taking a lot of pics, so I...

    Tales of Tower 17

    Thread Starter: USSHelm

    Back home in Texas after wrapping up freshman year at LA Tech. I live in Richmond, which is next door to Rosenberg, a crossroads for KCS, UP, and BNSF. The UP Glidden, BNSF Galveston, and KCS Rosenberg subs all intersect in Rosenberg. Dozens of trains daily, lots of photo opportunities. Tower 17...

Engine was BNSF 104. Don't know if it's just visiting or is joining the 4 GP60 B units in the area for local work...

    BNSF 1770 Meets AMTK 821 in Bernalillo, NM

    Thread Starter: Yard Limit

    Fall is a beautiful time of year in New Mexico and the world's largest cottonwood tree forest starts to turn yellow. What could be better than a blue and yellow BNSF legacy locomotive pulling the Lamy Local? The dispatcher puts him on the siding at Bernalillo, giving me a perfect opportunity to...
