Interesting shots, to be sure. My wife & I were on vacation in the last half of September 2013. Stayed overnight in a motel just outside the BNSF yards. Very enjoyable for a railfan.

We must have been down there about the same time. I caught the nice Green and Black BN locomotives and I saw the CN sitting on the river bridge. It took over two hours to get across CB. I saw it sitting on the Bridge at Noon and at 2pm I finally saw it rolling in to the CN Yard.

Good looking photos! Have you had the chance to go to Omaha and see #6900? My wife & I saw it while traveling across on Interstate 80. She couldn't understand what I was so excited about at first. :confused: I am wondering if there is a way to get close to the locomotive.

Yeah I must have not seen you there. I was only there for 30 minutes. That CN transfer was sitting on the bridge for awile.

My fault....we were in Lincoln Nebraska. But got quite an eyeful of BNSF & Uncle Pete trains while there. Back before the Earth's crust cooled (1975) I was visiting a steady girlfriend at that time. She lived in Princeton, Illinois. The Old Q went from Chicago to The Quad Cities, through Princeton. I took a few Kodachrome slides of BN trains 'on the fly'. I was in heaven! (Heady stuff for an 18 year old)
