Its Another World
Title:  Its Another World
Description:  Found this one at the former BN yard in Houston, where power from all over gathers. The one that got away: a super-clean D&RGW GP30 drifted past just as security escorted me to the gate.

From The Big Sky Country
Title:  From The Big Sky Country
Description:  I like SD45s- and MRL equipment is really rare in my neck of the woods, so I was doubly glad to come across this blue unit.

MRL 315
Title:  MRL 315
Description:  Delivered to Southern Pacific as SD45 9103 in April 1969 this diesel worked until being sent to Sacramento when it emerged in March 1985 as SD45R 7541. In December 1996 Union Pacific retired this unit and it was soon afterward aquired by Montana Rail Link; rebuilt, renumbered, and repainted becoming MRL 315 SD45-2XR. This locomotive has undergone two heavy rebuilds by two different railroads but has kept the distinctive exterior apperance of the SD45. In this photo MRL 315 is idling in BNSF Haslet Yard waiting for the next departing train with another MRL F45 idling in the background.

MRL-BN Moment
Title:  MRL-BN Moment
Description:  While it's not entirely evident with the haze, there is nothing but MRL & BN power seen here. First, C-SCMCEC is headed east passing a set of engines set out on the wye while in the background, ML has tied down their train (with MRL SD70Ace) and cranked up a BN Geep sitting in the yard, which they were forced to use to perform unadvertised & unannounced switching that the BNSF crew left undone for ML's pickup.

MRL ML w/Six Motors
Title:  MRL ML w/Six Motors
Description:  They got here somewhere around 1300hrs & it is now 1800hrs....they are STILL not ready to go, but need headroom out of the yard to perform another switching move. The straight set out/pick up that normally takes 30 minutes or less was not to be had today. BNSF evidently left them more work than they could have ever hoped for in the yard, I am pretty sure they moved each & every car around a dozen times.
