BNSF 1550 • Vancouver WA • 08/22/15
Title:  BNSF 1550 • Vancouver WA • 08/22/15
Description:  Assigned to the yard in Vancouver, Washington, is BNSF 1550 – a 61-year-old locomotive still in service on this August 22, 2015 afternoon. Built by EMD as Great Northern SD9 573, this locomotive became Burlington Northern 6100 in the CB&Q/GN/NP/SP&S merger that created the Burlington Northern Railroad in 1970. When the BN merged with the Santa Fe Railway at the end of 1996 this engine became BNSF 6100. To extend its useful life, BNSF SD9 6100 was rebuilt to an SD9-3 in early 1999, receiving a new nose and cab in the process (along with other internal upgrades). It was later renumbered BNSF 1710, and then renumbered again to BNSF 1550. In mid-2019, this engine was sent to storage in Minneapolis’ Northtown Yard, and is not likely to see service for the BNSF again.

UP 5922
Title:  UP 5922
Description:  UP 5922 last of the double pusher units on a double stack currently moving south along the Vancouver Central middle/main/old yard most likely toward the Vancouver Station and Columbia River Train Bridge crossing so she can return to home territory in Oregon. Long lens contributes to the claustrophobic and busy feeling with all the maintenance rigs currently stashed near the north end of the service buildings and re-organization of the BNSF service trackage.
