I finally got to see a little snow this year after temperatures reached low enough for the snow to stick. A PVJR train takes a cut of cars away from the BNSF interchange.
BNSF 6542 uses the new bypass track to the Fallbridge Sub on a sunny winter day.
Usually in the depths of the Great Western Malting silos, RLPX gets some sun and some work done on the sidings outside of the facility. This unit was built for the North Pacific in 1957 as NP 151.... (more)
The sun is out as a delayed Albina Job runs south with Matt Keene at the helm.
BNSF 1461 leads a transfer to Willbridge with a collection of Oilcans.
Welcome to the new age! The butt end of BNSF 1550, a 1954 built former GN SD9 sits on the turntable track with a former ATSF GP39-2.
One of the few hold out BN switchers on the modern roster hustles a single boxcar from the NW industrial area of Portland.
Pretty cool seeing the older SD60s being brought back into service.
663 rolls into NW Portland under the St. Johns bridge
Big power over a big bridge. Normally Portland & Western power runs over these tracks but a BNSF repo train takes away some stored well cars near Banks, OR.
A small pocket of sun illuminates BNSF 1746. This unit has been working Vancouver regularly since i've moved to the north west and sports some unique burn marks from apparently the dynamic brakes.... (more)
January had a lot more snow last year versus the practically no freezing temperatures we've had this year in Portland.
An ex-GN SD9, built in 1954 has gotten repainted into modern BNSF colors.
Dragging a load from the NW Industrial to Willbridge.
