    One-of-a-kind in Bend, OR

    "New" BNSF GP60 168 showed up yesterday as local power in Bend, OR, on the Oregon Trunk Sub. It is ex-HLCX 7700, received it's red paint while on lease to the Vermont Railway, and was originally purchased by the Texas-Mexican Railway. Sister BNSF 169 (still in T-M green) was wrecked...
  3. Southbound at Lava Butte Summit

    Southbound at Lava Butte Summit

    A southbound BNSF manifest crests Lava Butte Summit, 11 miles south of Bend, OR. A nice one-mile hike over the lave rock from the truck, mid-day, at 90 degrees!

    SB Baretable @ Sunriver, OR

    A southbound baretable (spine cars) blasts through Sunriver, OR at track speed (50 mph in dark territory). Those aren't specks on my lens, they're big snowflakes making an unsuccessful attempt at extending our winter.

    A work train came through Bend today, led by ES44C4 6627. I couldn't get a photo of the lead unit, but this GP60M was hiding in the consist.

  10. Pacific Harbor Line 66

    Pacific Harbor Line 66

    BNSF 4327 North came through Bend with the Pacific Harbor Line 66 as the last locomotive of the head end consist. While this may look like an SD40-2, it is actually an MP20C-3, built from an ex SP SD40.

    Real Heritage

    The SP 144 is the third unit of five on this Northbound (first two were boring H2 BNSF C44-9W's). SP 144 has survived 14 years without an ugly UP patch, and behind SP 144, BNSF 755 and BNSF 758 still wear the red and silver Warbonnet scheme of the Santa Fe.

    SP 144

    I was reading the "other" forums this morning and saw a heads up about this AC4400 heading North on the BNSF Gateway Sub. in Northern California. I heard the lead unit (BNSF 5450) get a warrant from 11Z to North Siding Switch Cascan, and the hunt was on! The BNSF 1000 also came...

    Heat Exchanger / Boiler on the Trunk

    I got a call from a friend who lives near the tracks telling me about this load. This is the first time I've seen something like this come through Bend.
  15. S/b Grainer on the OT Sub.

    S/b Grainer on the OT Sub.

    A very rare for the OT Sub. southbound grain train has topped Lava Butte Summit south of Bend, OR, in a "moderate" snow storm. 2nd loaded grainer we've seen come through here in the last couple of weeks, apparently symboled as Pasco to Barstow.
  16. ATSF 151824

    ATSF 151824

    This old Santa Fe boxcar came through Bend on a Northbound manifest today. Amazing to see a car still retaining its ATSF reporting marks in 2010, and in revenue service. Too bad the graffiti covered up the build date.

    TTZX 856810

    After calling Rob (robjacox) about the BNSF SD70ACe coming into town, I headed down to Cascan myself to try and get a photo of it with my new camera. If you saw Rob's photo of the SD70ACe, you'll know what happened to me when they set out the cars. This car a only a test shot to dial in the...
  18. ...and then an SD70ACe

    ...and then an SD70ACe

    On Monday the BNSF sends an ES44C4 up the Oregon Trunk Sub., and on Wednesday an SD70ACe! A first for me for both models, 2 days apart.Thanks to Warren Root for the heads up.
  19. Finally a C4 in central Oregon!

    Finally a C4 in central Oregon!

    I hear one or two came down the OT Sub. when they were first released, but this is the 1st one I've seen. Departed northbound out of Bend at 4:00pm. Not sure where (Pasco or Vancouver/Seattle) it was heading.It's pretty cold here - about 0 degrees - and that's fresh powder getting blown around...
