    Cool video Darren! Whats the deal with BN 6851!? I remember seeing it last time I passed through on the Zephyr. That's one gross looking loco. :p

    Sadly, this might have been the final ride for my '88 Jeep, it more then over heated on the way back to my house. Poor girl has ~185K but I was hoping she would last a few more years. Into the shop she goes on Tuesday to see if she is repairable.

    As for BN# 6851 I found this posting
    Remarks: BNSF SD40-2 6851 was damaged in grade crossing collision with ethanol tank truck near the Suncor Refinery in Commerce City, CO, at the 56th Avenue grade crossing on July 23rd, 2009. BNSF 6851 was working the Market Street job, running long hood forward when the truck apparently tried to "race ... through a flashing railroad crossing" (- Denver Post). The crew apparently jumped with only minor injuries, although there was apparently quite a fireball, as attested by the scorch job the 6851 received. A surveillance video on Denver Post's web site barely caught the accident: http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_12906408.

    :tb-sad: :tb-sad: :tb-sad:​


    UPDATE: Sadly, the Jeep has made her last Railfan trip. :(

    And I still haven't been able to get my father to unload my camera.

    Oh well, I guess it'll end up in the cutting room thread...

    I haven't seen Mark give his "Time's up!" post so I would say you have made it just under the wire.

    Thanks for all the joined in on the fun, it's always great to see what folks take video of and hear all those great "sounds" that still photographs lack.
