@Maersk.146 @Maersk.146 - You need to share those colorful EMDX units with your friends in Colorado-! Glad you're catching them in their fresh paint scheme. How do they look in the snow-?
UP 4014 Big Boy
UP 4014 laid over near Utah Junction north of Denver, Colorado, 25 November 2019. Denver city skyline at left. Snowstorm moved in overnight dumping 10-20 inches of snow along the Colorado Foothills (east side of the Colorado Rockies).
@COZephyr55 Looks like you may need to come over here again, as they appear to be dedicated to KCS testing

@COZephyr55 We haven’t had much snow here, and I’ve not seen the Demo units except in the yard. KCS is fairly boring and hard to access south of KC, so I rarely go down that way.

@Romet.Lyytsepp Great series!
@COZephyr55 Nice view of the military train and 4014!
A race on the KC Terminal, the only time I've ever been present to catch such an event. 17AUG2013
@Maersk.146 That's a nice shot!
@Maersk.146 Wow nice indeed!
@classick , @Romet.Lyytsepp Thanks, guys!
18 October 2019 Former New Jersey Transit 4141, GP40FH-2 (Built as CRIP 4715 GP40) were moved from bankrupt (in receivership as of October 2019) Iowa Pacific RR, Alamosa, CO, to Portland, Colorado, along UP's Tennessee Pass line operated by Rock & Rail (a Martin Marietta subsidiary).

@COZephyr55 Wow, Geeps with four radiator fans!
21 August 2008 Denver Union Station had several Union Pacific business cars at Denver, Colorado, USA, for Democratic National Convention. Old Denver Union Terminal trackage/Union Station area was redeveloped by Denver Regional Transportation District in later years. Amtrak K-9 Security used dogs to secure the area.
BORON LOCAL AND CABOOSE. Boron local is departing on weekday mornings from Barstow and arriving to Boron sometime before noon. On this day (10/2/2019) they arrived at about 1030. After arrival power was disconnected from train and recoupled with the rear of the train, then picked up caboose and reversed to Borax plant. They need to use caboose because of the long reversing move required to enter Borax facility. After all work is done Boron local heads back to Barstow sometime afternoon.
Caboose waiting at Borax spur to be picked up by local:
Boron local reversing to Borax plant, as seen from 20 Mule Team Rd crossing:
@Romet.Lyytsepp That one has seen better days... no glass in the windows, either.

NS 4097 West leads Train #224 to KC with Ford truck frames for the Claycomo factory 7DEC2019
@Romet.Lyytsepp Further information about BNSF loco operations on short intermodals - saw a 120-axle Z-train (approx. 45 platforms) on December 7 which had eight 4400 hp locos (35,200!), all of them online and working!
@Maersk.146 Ok this seems to be excessive..
@Romet.Lyytsepp Customer service to the max
It's one reason why UP doesn't have as much UPS and FedEx business as BNSF.

@Romet.Lyytsepp Excellent! We never see those GP60 or GP60M units around the KC area any more.
@Maersk.146 There are lot of them in Southern California. But still I didn't get proper photo of old Santa Fe unit leading train.

Action at Sibley Road; BNSF 6969 East meets BNSF 4422 West - both are high-priority Z-trains. 24 Jan 2020
@Maersk.146 Nice to see that you have so much action going on there! And proper winter. We don't have any snow in Estonia, only rain..
@Romet.Lyytsepp Yes, we have action and snow (occasionally), but usually I have to plow or shovel it, so this was a rare treat, to be able to spend all day driving around in it. Was already on vacation due to some car repairs earlier in the week...
