few Joint Line today . .
Author: 3rdswitch

. . been awhile since I got off by butt and went out for a few shots so this morning when tipped off that a UP generator train wound be heading south I decided what the . . with threatening skies headed north to ORSA siding located just north of Castle Rock, CO on the exSanta Fe side of the now joint UP-BNSF Denver Pueblo, CO Joint Line and waited about forty five minutes and the first train by was a southbound BNSF coal load (top) followed a half hour or so by this southbound BNSF manifest (middle) and close behind was the UP generator train (bottom) which snuck up on me as I was taking a large bite out of my Sonic double cheeseburger. Looks like UP made an effort to pick the grungiest unit they could find for a leader which had obviously been in coal serice on the Moffitt as trailing unit for some time. After quite an interlude another nice day in the neighborhood.

Great shots, Joe. I wonder if that UP 7097 is a former SP unit. ;)

Looks like the 7097 has seen a little coal service lately. You're killing me with these "another nice day in the neighborhood" shots. Thanks Joe........

When I saw the 7000 number I thought it wouldn't be good but had no idea how bad! Thanks for the tip.
