    Default Glendive, MT BNSF

    Got a chance to do a bit of fanning the last couple weeks. Got two decent videos to share. Short ones, but interesting, I think.

    That was an empty coal train westbound on it's way back to the coal mines.

    Yup, like it here a lot. Plenty of trains to watch. Mainline and locals, there's a gravel pit, chemical plant, oil tank farm, pipeyard, cement drop, fracking sand outfit and the Sidney branch. The roundhouse adds more to see. And right in the heart of the badlands! Beautiful!

    Got this set of 70MAC's resting in the yard here for the weekend. It is smoky from the fires way out west in WA and western MT.

    The local switch power at the moment. It's neat that their sequentially numbered and one is still BN!
    PIC_0773.jpg
    And some more leaser stuff setting here waiting to head east.
    PIC_0776.jpg
    Not too much from the rumor mill here, just the usual stuff. Lots of moving train crews away, going to Laurel and elsewhere now that they have eliminated helper crews. And that maybe BNSF has agreed to buy back MRL, again! Don't know how many times that rumor has flown around.

    Seen some differently weathered and worn units this week and thought they would be neat challenges for BNSF modelers.
    Am not sure what caused this issue on 4738.
    PIC_0840.jpg
    Definitely just new primer only battery box doors here.

    And another primer only door and a refurbed A/C unit from a red SF unit.

    Wow... looking a RRPicturesarchives, 4738 has been sporting that "deluxe paint job" for 4 years (looks like it happened in November/December 2011). Never would have thought they'd let it go that long without at least a primer coat getting slapped on.

    That's the new SF way. Minimal maintenance until a major failure, sideline it and buy a new one. Was a real challenge for the BN folk post merger. A lot of deferred maintenance on the SF units coming into BN territory. Just run it! What? No heat in the cab? No problem, just run it! Leaking oil? Fill 'er up! Paint is bad? So? Etc......

    This is a shot of the sandcar at the service track, with the sand gantry behind it.

    And just east of it, waiting for a pickup or to be serviced, something rare here.

    And even rarer, an Illinois Terminal GE! Wow!

    Woohoo! Got some big jobs/stresses out of the way and had some fanning time available. Even got an upgrade on our wi-fi internet such that a 2 minute video is only 25 mins to upload, not 4 hours! Just some more pumpkins and other stuff here in Glendive.

    These were my last weeks worth of interesting pics in the area. Pumpkins everywhere, but in some interesting locations. I hadf never seen or even heard about this NG set on BNSF, and here it set on the west end of the Glendive shop.
