Last Sunday In Denver
Author: mojaveflyer

Last Sunday our usual group met near the Riverside Pioneer Cemetery on north Denver for a chance to visit and watch any passing trains... We only had two trains, the Market Street Local that works industries on the north side of Denver and a coal  empty that headed out. 

Photo #1- The engineer of the Market Street Local demonstrates his desire to get out of the yard by notching out the SD40-2s as he accelerated onto  the main line from the freight lead. Looked as though these units had been idling awhile...

Photo #2- A coal empty departs having escaped being worked on by the Mechanical personnel and departing with a burned out ditch light. 

It was a chilly  morning but I'm enjoying the time I have left before rotator cuff surgery puts and end to playing with cameras for awhile.  Thanks for looking!

I didn't know BNSF had started using ALCOs again :)
