    Most likely the last couple of days! Later this week we are supposed to be back up in the 40's, would be easy starting then!

    BNSF 4070- Yet more burned toast. I am amazed that the railroads have not gone after GE for what would seem to be an obvious non-maintenance related defect. There is definitely a flaw in there.

    Don't see too many of the SD75M's about, so it is nice to get one in BNSF paint.

    The toasted GE problems are being covered under their lease. I believe, if the lease is written as the older ones were, that for every day that a unit is unavailable between FRA required maintenance, GE has to pay a "fine." That should be motivation enough to fix the problem.

    I would hope this is true. Yet the problems seem to persist, which has me wondering....

    Been a while since I posted anything. Here, on Mar 8th, a westbound is led by a lost CP unit, PIC_0279.JPG And some power is ready to go, or being shipped out from the west end. PIC_0285.JPG Mar 10th, this westbound has survived getting through North Dakota and is waiting for a crew while a track inspector heads east on the main. PIC_0289.JPG It's the 20th now, and a Big Green SD40-2 is in yard service here, for the time being. PIC_0426.JPG

    I have caught a few on video worth watching, too.
    This eastbound grain train gave me a greeting, or protest, but ended up scaring up a pheasant.

    Stopped out at Hodges and got a good quick catch of an empty blasting downhill, weird set with all 4 units on the headend and only FRED on the rear!

    First off, a longish video of an oil can going around me as it enters the wye to head for Sidney, MT and the Bakken,



    Followed by a running dry creek from a bridge, just waiting for a train.... PIC_0653.JPG

    And this sad tank on a flat car bound for repair??

    And today, I caught this M train slowly entering the yard, westbound, with a stack of MOW equipment for an interesting foreground,



    Then a bit later this KCS unit was working the east end building an eastbound M train,

    Have a jobsite just now that is right by the service track, which makes it difficult to stay focused on the job!! Here' another lost Canuck, sitting with a pumpkin on the "sand track." That is the track where they store the sand cars. PIC_0679.JPG PIC_0680.JPG PIC_0681.JPG

    It was the second best part of the day! Trains were the first, of course.

    Spring has sprung, mostly! Here's a V-train slowly heading east towards Beaver Hill and the NoDak badlands.

    Hopefully the snow is gone for another 6 months or so?:rolleyes:

    I still look for Fallen Flag autoracks every time I see one roll by, or at the Kent reload yard here in Kent, Wa.:D

    Do they still refer to this location as "West Siding"?
