    Nice to see the graffiti "artists" haven't reached this one yet!(y)

    Most of BNSF's around here have been tagged so much, you can't tell who owns it!!(n)

    And it doubles as a disguise, if you're trying to be hip with the kids you can just say you like EDM (electronic dance music)!

    I don't get out much in the rain, but when I do...

    The Ross Local leaves Minot in a downpour:

    Amtrak #7 leaves Minot late and in a rain shower:

    Even though it's darn near in the 80's this week, last week was a different story in the Wet City..... IMG_1450.JPG IMG_1452.JPG IMG_1453.JPG

    It was another wet one yesterday, out on the ex-NP line to Enumclaw, Wa. BNSF is still rehabbing the old line for car storage, so a ballast train ran up, and dumped the first ballast in 50+ years! 20191219_124951.jpg
    Nice to see the headlight shining on the rails for the first time in awhile... 20191219_204310.jpg

    It would be great to some day see revenue come from these tracks. But storage use at least keeps them in place.

    Hoping to see even more rehab photos!

    Here is the ballast train at the old NP Veazy Pit just north of Enumclaw, dumping ballast. My friend Jason's hi-rail truck is on the right with some ties that were last put down in the 40's by the NP!! 20191220_132136.jpg
    Pics of the train as it rolled thru Cumberland, some cool power on it!

    Another "Train in the Rain", back on Dec.12th.
    Empty well train stored just south of the Palmer Wye that they ended up moving over to Wymer Siding near Yakima so they could do more work on the branch.
    Biggest power ever seen here, I bet!!

    In the pouring rain at Clifton Forge, VA, October 1995. The structure is the former C&O station, perhaps still used by Amtrak.

    At some past date, a structure of this size must have been used for than just station duties. Division offices? Dispatchers?

    Haven't railfanned in the rain much since July, but here's one... For now, the rain is a bit more fluffy and hard... :p

    "1x1 Manifest"

    An unusual 1x1 manifest freight rolls slowly through downtown Minot in heavy rain. Rokinon 14mm.
