Decided to get out of Abilene for a change, and headed to the BNSF LaJunta sub and see what was there. Wasn't disappointed, as I caught a meet at Walton Ks, which is a few miles east of Newton

1: BNSF 3860 leads westbound windmill blades, toward a meet at Walton.
2: After the westbound cleared , BNSF 7898 prepares to leave Walton, leading a long stack train.
3: I moved into town, and caught the DPU's, which were BNSF 8184 & BNSF 3780
I headed into Newton, to see what the DSF had sitting around. Found a string of units, with their stacks capped. The units were:

1: BNSF 5350
2: BNSF 5286
3: BNSF 2285
4: BNSF 2051 (Smurf)
5: BNSF 2362
6: BNSF 2260
7: BNSF 2099
