Boron local reversing to borax mine



Nice! Did you see BNSF 146 out there at all?
@Maersk.146 Thanks! No I don’t think I saw this one. I was actually hoping to see old Santa Fe units with this local, but sadly only GP60M locos that morning. But what is unique about Boron local is they still use caboose, so train conductor don’t have to hang on to freight car when backing up into Rio Tinto facility.
@Romet.Lyytsepp Yes, and now cabooses are known as "shoving platforms", since they are not usually occupied except during such moves.
