I used to railfan the Sante Fe RR yard in Winslow, AZ and the SF personel were friendly and helpful. From the parking lot there was a walkway that employees used to cross over into the yard and maintenence facilities, it was an overhead affair that went up over the four main line tracks, one west bound, one eastbound and two that whole trains stopped on to refuel the locomotives. SF personel let me sit on the overhead walkway to photograph trains in the yard and on the mainline. When SF was obsorbed by BN, all those priviledges were gone in a second, they didn't even want me walking along the outside of their right of way to take pictures and threatened me. We had some hot words, and they left having no authority over me where I was. BNSF is not a railfan friendly Railroad. I've always been a Sante Fe fan, but you will never find a BNSF loco on my layout. I had to go on up the track to Diablo Canyon to take photos of SF locomotives still in the original livery. Sorry, but i cannot say a word to convince you to railfan the BNSF RR.
