There was a BNSF Double Stack train parked in front of Amtrak last night about 10:45 PM. The Locomotives were on the 14th Street Bridge and the train went back down towards Gibson Yard. The crossing at Pacific Street was blocked, but I don't think it mattered that time of the night. I would have made a heck of a night shot if the locomotives were back east about 100 yards...

I am assuming it was waiting for Amtrak to Arrive and Depart before continuing on. 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.
