Normally the Rosario local goes north from Albuquerque on Sunday, but April 1 was Easter so it made the trip the next day. After hearing it on the scanner starting it's return to Albuquerque, I went track side to catch it. BNSF 2024 and 1714 lead two empty asphalt cars back to Albuquerque.
In February, 1714 led 1609 back from Rosario with a train of empty asphalt cars.
People trespass here everyday because the tracks run through the middle of Bernalillo with most businesses being on the west side and a residential area on the east. Since two trespassers were killed in recent years, speed has been restricted to 40 mph through town. I'm sure that has saved a lot of lives, but people continue to trespass. We hear the audio of the crew reporting the trespasser walking down the tracks.
Two days previous, Amtrak had to stop because someone had passed out on the tracks.
