  1. Leaving town

    Leaving town

    BNSF SD70MAC 8855 leads KCS 4613 & 4605 (ex 2038 & 2030 respectively) south out of Heavener, OK on a loaded C-KCTU-27. On the rear of the train, 115 cars back in DPU are KCS 4623 (ex 2048), KCS 4015 and BNSF 9749 in cream & green.
  2. Lots of power

    Lots of power

    KCS #2005 leads UP #6705, 6450, KCS #2021 and #2035 through the area of double track work between Heavener and Howe. The crew has just climbed aboard for the ride to Pittsburg. And with 22,000 ponies available on an empty coal train...I don't think their will be any issue with making track speed.
  3. I-KCNO @ MP 340

    I-KCNO @ MP 340

    SD50 #7011 (ex-NS #5476/nee-CR #6832) leads SD40-2 #686, SD40-2 #607 (ex-C&NW SD40 #895)MoW GP10 #1907 and SD40-3 #6614 (ex-CN SD40 #5155) around a sweeping curve south of Heavener with I-KCNO bound for New Orleans. The only thing warmer than the weather on this day, is the intermodal cars...
  4. This is in Oklahoma?

    This is in Oklahoma?

    BNSF SD70MAC #8904 leads KCS #2049 & #2022 along with BNSF Dash 9 #5317 north between the North Heavener and South Howe switches. This area will soon be double tracked to ease traffic around the crew change and refueling terminal of Heavener, OK.
