    BNSF Stevens Pass traffic flow question....

    I'll add rumor and speculation. I believe BNSF doesn't run any real tonnage over Stevens because they don't have too, and they would rather run high priority - faster stack trains. It's far safer to run tonnage down the Lakeside/Fallbridge subs and requires minimal power at around 1 HP per...

    Scenic Sub Slides

    Sorry if this has already been answered, but does anyone know why they are cutting down all the trees in these areas? I understand that they do that on rocky hillsides because the trees can split the rocks up, but why on a hillside made of dirt? I was always lead to believe that the tree roots...

    India 2012 - 19: Goa - Diesel in Paradise II: Class Trip Morning (50 p.)

    Wenatchee Washington Radio Feed

    I appreciated the stream too while it lasted. Thanks Gary! Though above all I'd rather have more ATCS streams/routes covered online than road channels.

    Tracks in the Snow 2012

    We really lucked out on the weather and were all happy to see lots of falling snow, and lots of trains. 1. At some locations it actually snowed too hard like in this shot Saturday morning at The Slot. 2. Sometimes during the day it snowed more than an inch an hour and we looked more like...
