Good shots. You do a very good job of coming up with original photos from the same area. I have a thing for engine numbers and your shot of BNSF #999 was quite the catch.
I am a BNSF conductor and I really enjoy your pictures that you post, not just of BNSF but of Amtrak, UP and the local nature population. If you are ever looking for a different place to take pictures of BNSF and Amtrak along the BNSF main line, in Pittsburg right across the tracks from the USS/POSSCO steel plant there is a public parking lot that provides a great spot to see not only the Pittsburg yard, but the mainline as well. Anywhere around the Pittsburg yard and around Railroad avenue gives you a chance to see BNSF, Amtrak and UP interchange road switcher. Hope to see you out there. Enjoy the great weather.
Wow! Clean locos. We don't see clean ones very often up here in Portland.
Good shots. I like your creative use of the camera settings to keep the everyday from becoming ordinary. I must start trying that myself.
