    The Northgate Local with all of 4 cars ducks under the Old GN Yard footbridge after sunset as 3 westbounds are readied to depart. I haven't seen this much action at the old yard in quite some time.

    Do they run with ditch lights off in the yard limits?

    That consist may be a little overpowered for just four cars. Do they bring anything back?

    Somehow weather related? Or just a coincidence?

    I didn't see the westbound trip, but the Ceres Ag shipper at the international border is fairly busy, so they might have had upwards of 20 cars delivered.

    They're on main track 1, so it's odd.
    No, BNSF is still shipping grain. I don't recall exactly, but 2 of those are grain, one might be a V train.

    "Parhelion at MP 3"
    Us North Dakotans call these pillars of ice crystal in the atmosphere-refracted sunlight call these unique spectacles "Sun Dogs", but meteorologists call it Parhelion. Regardless, they typically only show up when the mercury curls up in the bulb in the double digits below zero on clear days. We're at MP 3 on the BNSF Glasgow Sub as a grain load grinds out of town westbound into the sun and the Sun Dogs.

    BNSF grain loads grind west at last light on a bitterly cold day.

    The bitter cold doesn't keep me indoors, but I do railfan from my warm truck!

    The 8331 Local (Williston Turn) drifts downgrade over Gassman Coulee on a -18 degree day. The brilliant sun belies the actual temperature and -37 windchill!

    Nice shot!

    That is brutal cold Hemi. I was in northeast PA way back when there was some sub zero temps and wind chills in the negative teens and even from the vehicle it was rough railfanning. My hat is off to you for the extremes you are enduring for all these great shots.
