Looking like it's coming, BNSF 7333 is actually the trailing DPU pushing a long stack train east. Having just departed LA, the train is now passing through the Green River golf course on the Orange County/Riverside County line. In the past several years, BNSF has triple tracked much of their...
Ex-Southern & Burlington Northern (both fallen flags) coal hoppers roll under CNs banner. Theres also a large chunk of ex-CP ones in the fleet on unit trains.
Note the bent structure on the CNA (ex-SOU) hopper.
Its early morning - crews work hard to replace the switch off the Watrous sub onto the Warman sub (PNL route). As you can see clearly in the photo, the mainline is split. I think they installed an automatic turnout, so that CN 303/314 dont need to bother the yard and take a good half hour away...

From MP 189.40 Watrous sub
12:25pm CN 402, 88 cars
Except for the SD50F, Dash 8-40CM & GP40-2LW, all of whom have fallen out of favour, nearly 35 years of CN mainline units are present...
Not long ago 4765 looked like 4784 behind him. Interestingly hes missing the CN sub-lettering & web address. Ive seen an ES44DC missing the web address as well looks like CN puts them in service ASAP, with the decaling arriving later.
This spur ran off CN Rivers sub into the Fort Garry Industrial Park #1. At its peak it had at least four spurs and siding, serving a variety of warehouses in the area. When I started railfanning in 2003, it was down to one spur and a siding, both lacking traffic. Not surprisingly by Spring 2005...
Ever since CN took over BC Rail and retired their RS18CAT fleet, WC GP38-2s had been heading west to feel the void. This one is heading back east however! I was suppose to catch it last winter on 357, but caught a blue-bird GT GP38-2 instead An ACR Geep ain't bad either - hard to believe they...
Once again 520 is short on power, hence the tramp power leading. Still no ditchlights, three zebras look right though. The GP38-2s trailing have the dubious distinction of wiping the GMD1 herd off the roster, as the preferred power of choice on the branchline. Nearly every Prairie branchline is...
These coal hoppers have been showing up on CN through town since at least June 14th, 2008. Odd, since they have an interchange with CP. Clearly they didnt think the slogan through, as Reading & Northern is a US shortline, while I keep seeing them in Canada. Although hard to see in the...
An eastbound autorack train glides through Strong City Kan. well under the speed limit of 55mph. the train is led by BNSF 5242 a C44-9W and 2 of it's cousins all in H2 paint on the BNSF Rwy Strong City Subdivision.
Freshly painted GP38-2W leads a trio of GP38-2's home on a wayfreight. Don't be fooled by the rosy picture, I've cropped out 4703's primer color cab for a reason.
4:09pm CN 520 (W/B) 1 minute
9 hoppers/11 tankers/34 hoppers
