A Colorado Railfan!
I decided to head out to the BNSF Brush Subdivision once again. This time with the Canon HF21. On our visit we visit 5 locations. East Rescar, Keenesburg Cut, Keenesburg, Tampa, and Roggen.

Train 1: After meeting Amtrak #5 and a coal load at Tonville, BNSF 9160 brings an empty through East Rescar, Colorado with two SD70ACes and two SD70MAC DPUs.

Train 2: Following right behind the BNSF 9160 East is another coal empty, this time is seen negotiating the small grade before enter Keenesburg Cut.

Train 3: A loaded coal train is seen entering the siding at Roggen for a meet with the Z-Train.

Train 4: After the loaded coal train is parked in the siding, the Denver to Chicago (Z-DENCHI) gets a green and proceeds on right through Roggen to Chicago.

Train 5: After meeting the Z-Train at Wiggins, the daily Lincoln, Nebraska to Denver, Colorado Manifest rolls through Tampa, Colorado with a very colorful lash up of GE and EMDs.

Train 6: After meeting the Lincoln - Denver Manifest at Tonville, another empty coal train races through the town of Keenesburg with a mixture of EMD and GE power. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
