    BNSF track projects, WA State 2014

    Interesting about the English siding project. I know one of the farmers real well, but he actually leases a little bit of the land from the BNSF on the far north end.

    Big Power on a Local

    Taken a few weeks back, a lone SD 60M works a local job out the Anacortes Branch. Switching done for the time being, the short train awaits a new crew at Fredonia, WA. (Would post color shots of this and the crude oil trains, but I can't figure out how to get my camera out of gray scale...

    Tesoro, Anacortes WA unit oil trains

    BTW....general observation for those who might want to photograph one of these trains....empties tend to go south in the AM...going through Mt. Vernon just ahead of or following the passenger trains often times. I don't see the loads go out too often, although one went out last Saturday...

    Stampede Pass Diary

    Actually, this one was taken later.....on a solo trip, Wes. The ones I took with you are on 35mm negs.

It is actually two 6x7 negatives merged together showing an eastbound train rounding Borup Loop to the right, then exiting Tunnel 4 on the left.
