Howdy all! I stumbled on this site while researching the flat cars used by BNSF to haul Boeing 737 fuselages for a friend who wants to model a set, and thought I'd join in.

About me: I'm a Renzenberger van driver for the BNSF Mobest yard here in Phoenix. I think it's about the most exciting train related job you can get without actually working for a railroad. Many times I'm mere feet away from trains (minimum 6 feet from the tracks, trains and vans don't mix)
