This afternoon about 1:30 a southbound BNSF train rolled past Pioneer (University Place, WA).

Headend had a BNSF unit in the lead and two CN units trailing. Mid train were three more BNSF units and the rear DPU's were a BNSF and a CP unit. Train consisted of grey 3 bay covered hoppers.

I was too far way (Fox Island) to pick up any more details. Anyone know what it was hauling (or was if it was an empty)?

Dunno? But I do know if you head trackside RIGHT NOW, 7:00 PM, you can catch U.P. 1996 (heritage) on the head end of a baretable. It should be heading north through Nisqually at the moment.


Thanks Greg!

Being a California native (refugee), I usually found that if I didn't know the location of some place in California, it was usually near LA. 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.
