One Iron Horse For A Long Train
Title:  One Iron Horse For A Long Train
Description:  Here storming into Long Lake in the early afternoon of the second day of November '07 is this pristine BN-painted (but with "BNSF" initals above the BN logo) wide-nosed SD60 9202. Hope the hogger had a unit with enough ponies horsepower-wise, for it was a long train 9202 had in tow.

Title:  Red And White On The Old Dan Patch Line
Description:  Two veteran Soo 38-2's are the power the crew on today's MNS 0630 job have at their disposal. They are crossing the oft-photographed bridge on the old Minneapolis, Northfield, & Southern mainline spanning the TC&W (ex-Milwaukee Road) and the Three Rivers Park district trail on the old Louie main. The tank cars on the TCW are for a BNSF unit enthanol train whose motive power will arrive later in the day. Speaking of which, that is my bike parked beside the trail.

Yellowbonnet And Cascade Green
Title:  Yellowbonnet And Cascade Green
Description:  Post-merger the BNSF was a colorful railroad. With vistas such as these common. Today, thirteen years afterward, they still can be found. Here a pair of veteran 40-2's are the power at the disposal of the crew aboard this eastbound freight departing Wayzata after being briefly stopped for a red signal. Tracks in the foreground are part of the former Dakota Rail interchange. Now used for occasional car storage by the BNSF.
