BNSF 9273
Title:  BNSF 9273
Description:  I thought I was done with the Joint Line after moving to Alaska, but a 3-week trip to New Mexico for training allowed me to sneak away on the weekends back to my old stomping grounds. Fittingly, the first train I caught had a nice ACe up front, seen here rolling north with coal empties.

BNSF 9323
Title:  BNSF 9323
Description:  My second shot upon returning to Colorado yielded a second ACe on the end. For this one, BNSF 9323 brings up the rear of northbound empties. Unfortunately, this was the last ACe I caught during my 3 weekends along the Joint Line.

BNSF 4345
Title:  BNSF 4345
Description:  This was one of those days when ATCS wasn't working and my scanner was back in AK so your best bet was to go old-school and plop down and just wait for a train. For a couple hours it looked like I chose poorly as southbounds tended to be the trend, and by the time this lone northbounder came into view, the sun was playing peek-a-boo with the clouds. Fortunately the sun broke free at the right time and I was saved a skunking!
