Description:  BNSF Yard Job Y- BIR102 doing some switching at East Thomas Yard. Finally after years of waiting for a shot of these unusual SD38P's & TEBC6's in actual service I finally nailed them on a yard job doing some switching. These units usually sit around & aren't used very much & I have plenty of roster shots of them, but was very happy to finally catch them performing service after years of waiting

NS'S Alabama Division Birmingham East End District
Title:  NS'S Alabama Division Birmingham East End District
Description:  NS Westbound Vehicle Train 270 ( Birmingham to Lincoln, Al. Honda Plant ) passing through Riverside, Al. on their way back to BNSF's East Thomas Yard with an ultra rare pair of SD38Ps for power, Ive caught these before on transfers & yard jobs on BNSF, but is my 1st time ever seeing these SD38Ps on a road train, theyre not equipped with ditch lights, so the 270 had to run 30 MPH over each crossing with the headend only, once the headend gets through the crossing they can get back to track speed, but if theres many road crossings together may as well stay at 30 MPH

NS'S Alabama Division Birmingham East End District
Title:  NS'S Alabama Division Birmingham East End District
Description:  NS Westbound Vehicle Train 270 ( Birmingham to Lincoln, Al. Honda Plant ) smokes it up as they pass through Prescott, Al. on their way back to BNSFs East Thomas Yard with a rare pair of SD38Ps for power. Not long after the 270 passed this location the woods caught on fire, I wonder if sparks came from the exhaust stacks of 1557 & 1559 while they were under heavy load pulling this hill that set the woods on fire or was it just a careless smoker between one of the crew members on 270, or was it a careless smoker in a passing vehicle, you never know what happened, you be the Fire Chief Investigater as 270 passes by with the deturbo'd SD38P's in run 8 struggling up grade with smells of diesel & burning oil spewing from 1559, after these SD38P's 1557 & 1559 passed by this location the air was filled with a thick cloud of diesel, I'd bet the 1559 spewed out some sparks that set the woods on fire, it has been known to happen in the past.
