  1. BNSF 5258 at Sunset

    BNSF 5258 at Sunset

    Westbound BNSF grain train creeps down the main line in Pasco, Washington at Sunset
  2. Wheels

    Wheels

    A flatcar full of used wheels sat in the Pasco Yard awaiting its turn over the hump. The early morning sun highlights the differences in the bearing caps and wheel shape.
  3. Slacker Stacker

    Slacker Stacker

    After a crew change at Husky, then waiting at East Pasco for an inbound Manifest to clear Main 2, BNSF 7447 finally pulls this stacker out of the Columbia basin, only to get overtaken by an empty grainer on Main 1. Definitely not a high priority Z-train!
  4. Car Shop

    Car Shop

    The western side of the Pasco Car shop not usually seen as the yard is yypically full of traffic.
  5. ATOMIK

    ATOMIK

    Although I do not condone graffiti tagging, when full car art work such as that on BNFE 19295 appears, I can definitely say it adds color to the typically mundane rail yard. First spotted (above) rolling down the Pasco hump on the evening of March 20, 2009, it reappeared April 6th.
  6. Still needs a Night-light

    Still needs a Night-light

    As the sun begins to illuminate the sky, the local BNSF power still slumbers under the glow of the overhead Pasco yard 'night light'.
  7. BNSF bridge at Pasco WA

    BNSF bridge at Pasco WA

    This bridge crosses the Columbia River. It was raised in 1955 by the Northern Pacific when the water filled behind McNary dam, creating Lake Wallula. McNary dam is about 55 miles downstream from Pasco. This bridge is on BNSF's Spokane to Portland mainline. The Stampede pass line branches off...

  11. Long live the BN

    Long live the BN

    Some classic BN power rests in the yard in Pasco, WA after a thunderstorm.
  12. HLCX #9010 in Wishram, Washington yard.

    HLCX #9010 in Wishram, Washington yard.

    HLCX #9010 rests as the second unit on the M-PASLYD-1-09 (Manifest - Pasco, Wa to Lake Yard, Ore.). Rather unusual to see a HLCX SD45 carbody.
  13. Oakway leading a Westbound Grain Train.

    Oakway leading a Westbound Grain Train.

    Oakway #9031 leading a BN green SD40-2 on it's journey to the ports of Portland, Vancouver or Kalama.. This grain train had a whole rainbow mix of grain hoppers with the mineral red cars starting right behind the power.. It was interesting to see just two units pull this 14,000 ton grain...
  14. Whoops!

    Whoops!

    Southbound Tacoma to Pasco derailed about 7 cars, but only on one side. I'm amazed how the rail stood up to the tremendous pressure applied by the flange on the other rail. This happened at approximately 3:15pm on March 30th, 2008. The train stopped just under the Narrows Bridge.
  15. Chasing the Setting Sun

    Chasing the Setting Sun

    BNSF 4137 leads the westbound Everett-Pasco manifest towards the setting sun as a threatening sky forms overhead

  19. Wallula Gap

    Wallula Gap

    The V-PTLKCK races through the Wallula Gap toward Pasco. The Wallula Gap features some mighty imposing geology, which makes it rather photogenic.
  20. Going away like past times.

    Going away like past times.

    The end of a BNSF local slowly rolls under the signal bridge at the west end of Pasco yard.
