BNSF 6111 - CSX 7785 - CSX 7727 auto-rack on hold being passed (in reverse) by BNSF 2339
Title:  BNSF 6111 - CSX 7785 - CSX 7727 auto-rack on hold being passed (in reverse) by BNSF 2339
Description:  BNSF 6111 - CSX 7785 - CSX 7727 auto-rack on hold being passed (in reverse) by BNSF 2339 working the yard in Vancouver. New Year, new rumor? Does this mean CP couldve buy/merge the CSX group, so maybe Warren will? Sorry - Im still not giving up my BnsF (the NS being an obvious and easily integrated set of initials) rumor... although broken record has nothing on me.

Title:  BNSF 6111
Description:  BNSF 6111 on point for a threesome southbound auto-rack holding in the new-old passing lane along Fruit Valley road through the middle and north sections of Vancouver Center ladder yard - the two mains to her port side.

CREX 1333 - BNSF 3186
Title:  CREX 1333 - BNSF 3186
Description:  CREX 1333 - BNSF 3186 last pair of the four at the front of a northbound mixed freight - just because Im always in awe of just how huge those 4400s really are - yet as they trundle past on crossings and in the distance, you never get a chance to slow down and really take a good hard look at the monsters - so nuzzled nose-to-nose with a Geep just has to tickle something inside. (Too bad the grand designer ordered crap lighting for the day... eh, I guess its not raining, even if it is dark and miserable.)

CSX 7727
Title:  CSX 7727
Description:  CSX 7727 butt-to-the-south in last place of three, but still in the money, with southbound autorack set. Sorry for the extraneously generous lower third of the frame crop, but bumpers never get their due, so had to include one just for kicks to start the year off right.

CSX 7785
Title:  CSX 7785
Description:  CSX 7785 middle of three at the front of an autorack ready to head south through Vancouver - and itd be a pity if CSX is bought out/merged before she can issue Chessie heritage engines (I know - Ive violated sacred oaths, since heritage should be B&O, C&O, WM, etc. - but there was something about the yellow Chessie scheme that was just neat to see - not to mention, retaining the registries was neat so you could believe, vaguely, the B&O et al still existed. (What do you mean Im just a ray of sunshine at parties? (That would entail me being invited to one in the first place. Go figure.)))

BNSF 4078
Title:  BNSF 4078
Description:  BNSF 4078 at the front of a northbound double-header (and double-hinder... double-butter? Dual posterior? (Oh, DPU. Never mind.) (Not to mention, this is the head/front end of this discussion... it only seems like the cold numbs the... that thing... on top your head... dang, knew I shouldve worn a hat.)) line of covered hoppers - which apparently could be empties, soybean, or potentially wheat (last less likely as United Grain export terminal is a few miles to the rear of this consist).

BNSF 5057
Title:  BNSF 5057
Description:  BNSF 5057 second from the end on pusher detail awaiting a clear, or a crew, or the sun to finish rising - after a month of little or no sun, Id figure just about everyone and everything around these parts is sort of taking it slow for a few minutes of bright-light joy.

BNSF 7164 - BNSF 5057
Title:  BNSF 7164 - BNSF 5057
Description:  BNSF 7164 - BNSF 5057 DPU at the rear of a northbound line of covered hoppers as the sun crests the hill behind us... that glowing orange-yellow thing that makes the day seem warmer than it really is - especially as we had doubts about the existence of that thing called sun - although wed heard rumors for the past month or so, but to actually observe it first hand was rather remarkable. (I believe the steam is from our local propane/natural gas electricity generating plant on Lower River Road - turns out, we cant get everything from the dams and hydroelectric, but not for lack of trying... at least when theres not discussion about breaching the dams so the fish can migrate easier.)

BNSF 798
Title:  BNSF 798
Description:  BNSF 798 in at second place leading a mile of covered hoppers north... at least as soon as a semi-clear signal lets them out of their passing line hold on this particular cold morning.

BNSF 8048
Title:  BNSF 8048
Description:  BNSF 8048 in the second pulling position at the front of a northbound string of covered hoppers in the by-pass lane, just to demonstrate the distance back from the signal this consist stopped... because even the lead engine is a little south of the typical number two unit stopping point during rain, clouds, and miserable weather - but Im sure its an optical illusion... about like my mental hang-up in not going to the other side of the over-pass to snap the picture, because for two at the front theyre always on the north side of the over-pass. (Always... Except on sun days.) (Dang - now I cant get the stupid song out of my head... "but never on a...")

BNSF 9261
Title:  BNSF 9261
Description:  BNSF 9261 at the front of another covered hopper dynamic duo, this one held up on the new by-pass lane... which I guess would mean soybean in the hoppers? Headed to Canada if I heard the rumors right... and is it me, or did he pull up short just to keep the cab in the sun? Im sure its just my imagination... giving a bit of a buffer before the signal... thats it.

Title:  BNSF 513-(?) - UP 3849(?)- BNSF 708 - BNSF 1828 - BNSF 1406
Description:  BNSF 513-(?) - UP 3849(?)- BNSF 708 - BNSF 1828 - BNSF 1406 in a cool color combination where unfortunately I was two minutes too late packing the new camera (meaning clarity of image optional! Nope - still not making progress with this darn Sony poor-excuse-for-a-camera... if anyone from Sony would like to contact me, Id be happy to discuss things and let them prove to me Im doing something wrong - because my partially broken Canon SX260 is still out-shooting the Sony hands down for image quality). Power shuffle headed north and away from the lens... sniff.

Title:  BNSF 1599 - BNSF 2925
Description:  BNSF 1599 - BNSF 2925 local yard pair in the north ladder yard sitting under the setting sun amidst the snow... which will end up being only a taste of total snow fall for January, while the local PNWR continues to quickly trundle forward approaching the 39th Street over-pass and my side of the bridge.

Description:  BNSF 5975 - BNSF 3882 DPU holding up in the passing lane with northbound string of covered hoppers. Thatll teach me to complain about the rain and make snarky comments about our one day of sun.

PNWR 2306 - PNWR 2317 - PNWR 2314
Title:  PNWR 2306 - PNWR 2317 - PNWR 2314
Description:  PNWR 2306 - PNWR 2317 - PNWR 2314 local trio from the sunny south making their way past the middle ladder yard of Vancouver Center to reach the northern end where theyll snag the local mixed freight and return to Portland. (for the photographically inclined - "Yes, the vertical crop looks aesthetically much more pleasing." - but I wanted all three units in the frame... and having no time to run across a hazardous road in this weather crud, well, "You get what you get, and you dont throw a fit.")

PNWR 2314 "McMinnville"
Title:  PNWR 2314 "McMinnville"
Description:  PNWR 2314 "McMinnville" (home of Wingsn Waves... not that Im looking for a sponsor or discount tickets for the in-law family trip coming up in another couple months... but, uh, I could potentially find my way to *always* mention that combination with every PNWR 2314 image I post... just sayin - hit the post comment button or look me up as an author and contact me so we can work out the details... not that Id ever sell out (too cheaply) (wait - yes I would)) soon to be the leader of this three-pack in a few minutes after snagging the local mixed freight for Western Oregon distribution. (I have other shots of her in the snow today - but Im, uh, not posting those... yet... until I know if Ive got a sponsor to alter the text... or maybe accidentally put a W-n-W logo on the corner - not that I would - but I could... especially if that logo "accidentally" found its way onto my desktop at the same time I was editing those other PNWR 2314 images and "accidentally" got watermarked directly into the image - would be a pity, wouldnt it? (hint, hint))

PNWR 2317
Title:  PNWR 2317
Description:  PNWR 2317 monkey-in-the-middle with Mater eyes (get a picture of Tow Mater from the Cars series (heck, if Im looking for sponsors, what the heck!) - although I am serious - check out the windshield wiper pattern on the front windscreen - thats not digital tweaking - its natural road grime with wipers catching the sun. Sorry - I thought it was wonderfully hilarious. Then again, by this point, the cold is likely affecting my brain function. Im also finding the beautiful hue of blue my fingers have turned to be just as fascinating.

Title:  BNSF 5995
Description:  BNSF 5995 at the front of a three-way northbound coal drag hurtling under the 39th Street over-pass in a desperation 24mm set of grab shots (yes, motion blur due to proximity and only 1/250s shutter speed - but as its a Canon (and not my illustrious Sony belly flop) I was able to get two or more images of each unit to choose from during this brief interlude - and not counting the partial unit shots - not saying my Sony camera sucks, but... wait, I am saying that.)

BNSF 6261
Title:  BNSF 6261
Description:  BNSF 6261 in the middle of three at the front of a northbound string of coal hoppers in a shot nearly worthy of the American Quarter Horse Association (for those of you out of the loop - the idea is to make the behind/rump look as large and muscular as possible in the images, so typically the back half of the horse will be closer to the camera than the front half... well, at least thats how they used to do it.)

Description:  BNSF 6982 (southbound autorack) being passed by BNSF 6070 lone pusher on a northbound coal drag just to the top side of 39th Street over-pass along the northern ladder yard at Vancouver Center under dark and threatening evening skies (and, yes, a combination of me and too-slow shutter speed after a rapid zoom causing the Canon to lose sharpness - so its not infallible - but the dark, cold day with incomplete crispness is the exception, not the rule with this old partially broken camera - Id be only mostly unhappy if the Sony could yield half the number of acceptable shots as the Canon.)

(Not even bothering to see the PNWR threesome just to the north (right) of this frame partially hidden in the ladder yard at this point.)

Title:  BNSF 1447
Description:  BNSF 1447 six-of-seven headed backward northbound with possibly mixed freight (yup, Im pretty sure theres freight back there... not that the foam is starting to form, but the odd shape in front of her - or behind her, but more toward the front of the train - eh, never mind... heres the cool thing...)

BNSF 1572
Title:  BNSF 1572
Description:  BNSF 1572 at the back of a super-weird set of power units shuffling north through Vancouver on mixed freight duty... I believe shes seven of seven providing horses on the move... although the number three (from the rear) unit has me a little rushed in snapping to get there.

BNSF 1924
Title:  BNSF 1924
Description:  BNSF 1924 fourth of the seven leading a mixed freight north out of Vancouver - snapped just before the mad scramble back up through the blackberry vines to the top of the bridge to get to the other side hopefully to catch the rest of the consist. (time 12:47P PST)

BNSF 2367
Title:  BNSF 2367
Description:  BNSF 2367 as an interesting choice for the fourth slot of the group. Id thought 2367 was a local remote unit, although shes stuck between those huge road units at the current moment (the new yard by-pass lane is visible in the background).

BNSF 327
Title:  BNSF 327
Description:  BNSF 327 starboard side - stuck in the middle of an odd-lot set of power steaming out of Vancouver - and a bit of a rush-job to snap the picture, in low-quality mode and everything on the poor little broken Canon Im packing... but at least its in focus (not that Id ever use a camera that doesnt focus... oh, wait... thats why the Sony is sitting at home.)

BNSF 327
Title:  BNSF 327
Description:  BNSF 327 and port side as she quickly makes her way north out of Vancouver under the Lake Shore/Fruit Valley over-pass - apologies, but we dont get many slugs in our area - image slightly out of order, but not by much - luckily this group of power at the front of a northbound mixed freight were pulling out of our area somewhat slowly. (time 12:48P PST)

BNSF 4946 - BNSF 6853
Title:  BNSF 4946 - BNSF 6853
Description:  BNSF 4946 - BNSF 6853 ready to lead a northbound covered hopper double-header out of the passing lane - the northbound mixed freight seven-way power pulling out of the ladder yard. (Yes, by this image, I wouldve sworn the sevensome wouldve been reversing back up - but theres only so much patience I can ask of the better-half when shes let me make an unscheduled train hunting stop).

BNSF 4946
Title:  BNSF 4946
Description:  BNSF 4946 at the front of two with a northbound line-up of covered hoppers using creative cropping to suggest blue sky... just ignore the crap-lighting across the subject and landscape to indicate the real story.
