BNSF 1262 (3GS21B)

BNSF 1263-1262-1267, all 3GS21Bs rest at the shops.
As you can see, these goats have some hills to climb Chevron Richmond Refinery in the background. I caught an ex-SOO? SW1200 type engine (#201) switching the refinery right behind me, either Chevrons own or Richmond Pacifics. You can see their yard in the foreground of the shop compilation.

Im surprised more railfans dont shoot from this location mostly from AMTRAK stations such as Emeryville, Jack London Squire and San Jose (ok Im guilty of that too).

PS. What's with the extra-tall autorack?
Lots of SD75s out there! I love SD75s...

Thoes "Extra-tall Autoracks" are special articulated 'Automax' cars.
