Blt 05-12 is a free online Railroad Discussion Forum and Railroad Photo Gallery for railroaders, railfans, model railroaders and anyone else who is interested in railroads. We cover a wide variety of topics, including freight trains, passenger and commuter railroads, rail news and information, tourist railroads, railway museums and railroad history.


Today's UP Lake Yard to Albina Yard transfer included a string of well cars fresh from the Gunderson plant. Here they are on their first mile of mainline rail -- and still no graffiti. But (sigh) the day is still young. :(

Last week I saw some cars like that in a baretables train heading north (tt/east) past Mile Post 18 in Edmonds. The new paint jobs really stood out.
