    The white tank makes me think propane. I see many black propane tanks on NS, also some white. But I've never seen a white oil tank.

    I see them every now and then in an oil train. We get a lot of oil trains through here coming and going to all the refineries in the vicinity. They are pretty much always a solid block of tank cars with 1267 on the placard. And of course a "buffer" car of some sort between the tank cars and the locomotives. If you squint real hard you can read the placards on Hemi's photo ;)

    Right behind you was where Billy Schumaker had his hydroplane race shop. I was in there a few times. Love that sport...

    Russ,
    My photos are not quite that sharp! :p It could be anything. Anhydrous Ammonia (fertilizer), natural gas/propane (dozens of petroleum gas in black tank cars thru Minot daily), oil empties, etc.

    A few more BN remnants hanging around Glendive, and I still remember being "bored" of seeing so much Cascade green! PIC_0659.JPG PIC_0660.JPG PIC_0661.JPG PIC_0573.JPG

    What is on the ends of the ties, that looks like cable or piping? Something to do with a switch heater?

    I have no idea! That is the CP line, at the diamonds. Might have something to do with the diamonds.

    May have something to do with signaling and track occupation. Notice that "the cable" seems to terminate at the orange painted rail joiner. Insulated and isolated?
