    BNSF units on the Empire Builder

    Just general equipment failures and a shortage of power. for a while there were several specials roaming the system and that chewed up extra locomotives ( including 4 on the annual AAPRCO train)

    New Cascades Talgo

    The orignailly designed cab cars had a 40' blind spot in fron of the cab car, fromwhat I have been told, and thery were designed for only one person in the cab, no room for a trainee, DSLE, or the like.

    Some Local Switching and a "Baby" Builder to start March 2011

    It originated in St Paul, thus a lounge car is sufficient. Also there was a coach baggage handling the baggage

    Amtrak 1007/Empire Builder pulled by BNSF

    BNSF requires 3 unit s on the Builder during the winter. Amtrak has been short of power and they have been leasing BNSF units to make up the 3 unit sets

    Where have all the cabbages gone?

    There is one Blue and Silver NPCU in Cascades service, the 90278. that unit was equipped with a supplemental air compressor for use with the Talgos as a test. The ruel was recently revised to allow the Talgos to run with out a unit on the rear.
