    Is it my imagination, or are some BNSF trains getting more diesels? I have noticed some trains up here with lots of power, such as 6-7 units, on the head end.

    Well it has kind of always been the case here. I live at the end of the line for this part of the BNSF, so the Z trains always arrive with 5 engines per train, so I think they end up with a lot of surplus power at the Richmond yard that they have to send back east (or north or south) where it is needed.

    Working on the triple track here. That switch reminds of a piece of Atlas Snap Track from my old HO days.

    Closeup of the Geeps. 532 is a GP38-2, and 1212 is a former MKT GP-39-2.
