    Powder day! A good snowfall day on the Glasgow Sub as a westbound stack digs into the grade leaving Minot.

    Wow, I didn't realize the steel gondolas were still being used on the Halstead train in 2009! Nice shots, Russell.

    Can you imagine the miles those things have travelled?

    Nice shots.......I wished I had a camera the other day. On my way to work, there were 8 BNSF units running together, no cars, headed west. The trailing unit had a FRED.......I don't think I've ever seen a FRED on a loco before.

    I've never seen one in all the photos of rear end DPUs. Granted, I've never looked that closely for a FRED because I didn't expect to see one.

    BNSF doesn't require a Fred on a DP motor but I believe some other roads do. I saw one on a CP motor that was the trailing of two DP units on a grain train the other day, but I don't know if it was armed to the HED in the lead motor.

    BNSF has been doing some power moves lately and if they're consequential enough we'll be notified of them and the conditions they're required to operate under. A couple weeks ago I had a 10 unit light consist but all the units were functioning so all connections were made between them and the rear headlight on dim was used as the marker. Of course they only let me have one of them in run and no throttle above 40mph, so it wasn't that much fun! Still, going downhill at pasenger speed was a treat. My conductor that trip is on a Facebook group of local railfans so the paparazzi was out in force that day.

    This is the closest we get around here to a proper earthworm.

    TEBUC-6! Nice catch.
    I think BN rebuilt them from SD7/9 cores.

    Not many heavy snow storms in Minot this year, but I did manage to catch some action in the snow.

    Here's an eastbound V-train in heavy snow, approaching the GN Amtrak station in Minot, and a moment later, knocking down the signals at CP2030.
