The same widecabs emerge from under the Tifft Street Bridge. I really liked the old BN hopper being used as a spacer car.

Correct: Technically, a C6 covered hopper car. Used to haul them in 108-car unit grain trains out here.

Deja vu? NS 13T had a BN hopper in the mix just a few days ago.

Does anyone know if the "blue smurfs" are still around?  I would love to find one of those when I'm out chasing train.

I caught this tank car train on the CSX line through Erie, PA at 1805Hrs on 8/15/13. Just 2 (#5276 & #4169) of the over 1500 Dash944CWs BNSF has were leading. The BNSF units caught me off guard.

I also caught BNSF power on a tank train last week. In this case, the power was heading westbound on CSX at Buffalo Creek Junction.
 

 
Later that same day, BNSF power led a westbound CSX hopper train at the same location.  
 

 
Both photos in this post were taken by me Friday 9/13/2013 in Buffalo, NY.

A pair of BNSF Swoosh units showed up on the High Line in Philly today. Only had a sec to grab a shot.

Heavy power consists are the norm here, most with 5 to 7 engines.

Southbound CalTrans Amtrak on BNSF departing the Fresno station with cab car leading, F59PHI  CDTX #2007 on the rear.
 
Numerous Amtraks traverse this line daily, every few hours in both directions. Most are double deck with cab cars as in the pic, however some are single level with HEP. Makes for interesting combinations.

Surprised she's still in mainline service, especially in "tier 4" country.
