Other forums have them, now this one does! Post your BNSF shots here! Mods, please sticky.

I'll lead off with a picture of a train on BNSF's Superior, NE. branch, at the station in Abilene, KS.

I changed this one out since it is also found on RP.net. Here's a new pic of an intermodal headed west through my favorite spot on the BNSF, Ellinor Jct. As you can see, the searchlight signals found here are about to be replaced. In fact, it wouldn't shock me if they were history as I type this.

Heres one for you taken at "speed" ;)


About 1 hr east of Missola Montana, a BNSF eastbound with non-traditional equipment, on BNSF leased to and leased back trackage to Montana RailLink (MRL); train ran by MRL crews for BNSF;  taken at approximatly 65 MPH by my tour guide in the stepwell of my tourcoach with my camera!   It was amazing to see the 5 locos actually bouncing on the line... the locos were moving up & down about 6 inches and at different times. strange sight to see!
As I past the lead loco I hit my air horn with a quick short short and was quickly responded to by an EMD short short.  :)
My british pax were firstly awestruck by the length of the train as well as size of cars.  Then to hear the train "talk back" to them as I-90 banked to the left and the train stayed on it's straight tangent....  Like two birds banking away from each other.....  it still brings a tear to my eye.... :'(

Sorry for the delay, here's a few more and I'll try to keep them in order, Here's the helpers at the crossing in Caliente. The only time I had to shoot and watch trains was late afternoon. some of the spots aren't great for Late PM shots, so I did what I could. We'll see these helpers often as PM shots favor the downhill trains.

Post by zwsplac on Nov 30th, 2005, 2:31pm
You're probably wondering why I'm posting a picture of an NS led train on Union Pacific rails in Topeka Ks? Well, BNSF has a little used trackage rights agreement on the Golden State Route from Kansas City to Vaughn, NM. I have the strongest suspicion that this is one of those hard to find trackage rights trains. The locvation is SJ Junction in Topeka Kansas, and this Rack train is just pulling off the Kansas Sub onto the Golden State Route. Hidden behind that tree is a man who came 15 feet from being hit by this train as he walked across the tracks without a glance left or right. It would've made Matt's blood boil!

Great pictures is an understatement. Nice to see them. The BNSF 2006 calendar could use a lot of them. There are some real "dogs" on it compared to these.
X600, where is the loop or what ever you called it?
zwsplac,, the MRL has been on a mission tearing down all the old bridge signals and cantlevers. They were all put in by the NP in the "50s" and "60s". Guess they are getting dangerous to work on. Fatigue I guess. Metal and concrete goes with age I guess.
They weren't much fun to be on when the wind was blowing, which is common in Mt.

A hodge-podge of Locos at Braid Station, New Westminster British Columbia.

As this is the Junction between CP/CN and BNSF;  railfans can see all sorts of leased and "transiting the zone" locos.   I have seen new primered NS & MRL units; CP & Amtrak Green Goats;  The steam locie for the tourist operation in Tacoma, Washington among others fading from memory.....

Here to the far right are 2 locos that had called Rail America's Vancouver Island line  "Esquimalt & Nanaimo" home for the last 8 years; now transiting to another Rail Generica property......

First shot, I am standing above the loop, in awe that I'm actually here. BNSF 6046 is in control of a unit steel coil train in the siding and will be meeting BNSF 5247 which can be seen to the right, winding his way towards the loop.

Well, I've been told to post a few of my BNSF shots here, so I guess I will!  I live about 30 miles from the BNSF Cuba sub near Cuba, MO, but I railfan BNSF all over the country in our travels.  Here are a few pics.

Nice pictures everyone. I don't hit the BNSF too often, but I did a lot more BNSF in July than UP! On my trip to Kansas to visit my family, I spent a few nice hours along the BNSF. Here's a couple of my shots, which were taken at El Dorado Lake in southern Kansas.

The paint scheme on 1023 is the Heritage 1 paint scheme, the first new scheme after the merger.  I don't know how many engines still wear it, but I imagine there were quite a few in that scheme at one time.

While leaving Mojave to head home I noticed a blur of orange off in the distance which prompted me to pull over near the BNSF's Mojave sub near the UP-BNSF jct south of town. The sun was still out, and after nearly 2 weeks of rain and clouds every min. was surely welcome. Soon enough BNSF 5255 showed up with a west bound autorack train, a great way to end the day, BNSF style.

A pair of BNSF units were part of the power for eastbound NS mixed freight 13T two days ago:

Southbound BNSF mixed freight through Fresno, CA. 3 on the front, 2 rear DPU's.
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.

Well I've been without internet for over 7 months, doing little on mobile other than checking the forums for others contributions and very minimal railfanning for the last 4 months due to the summer heat and overtime at work.

While there will be more contributions going forward, for today we have a BNSF unit coil steel train on the approach to tackling Tehachapi, departing the Bakersfield yard southbound.
6937, 6530, and 8350 on the head end
5472 and 7448 on the rear

Unit grain train making the loop at Tehachapi. The four engines in the background are the lead units taking the train north toward Bakersfield about to go through the tunnel under the rest of the train including the 3 mid train helpers in the foreground. I'd always missed the western road heritage unit grain trains from back in my days of working over the road in Texas, and plains states, here in the central valley I get a good mix of unit grain train action for the numerous large mills, most with their own in plant power.

A hotshot intermodal and another southbound freight awaiting a re-crew bracket a set of light power awaiting a signal at the Calwa interlocking. This location is on the south end of the BNSF Fresno (Calwa) yard where the single track Union Pacific mainline through the central valley crosses over the double track BNSF mainline, with numerous Amtrak moves and a steady stream of freight to keep railfanning here very interesting.

Nice catch with the war bonnet!

A pair of BNSF pumpkins were leading NS 205 last week:

The last few weekends I've found some time to sit trackside at the Calwa interlocking, where UP crosses the BNSF on the south end of BNSF's Fresno "Calwa" yard. On these trips I've taken minimal pictures and focused more on train logs, something I was introduced to by a good friend a few years back. I'd add in the engine numbers, but most trains have 4 to 7 engines on them, gets messy for this format.

5/27/17

1128 BNSF-S2 Mixed
