A dusting of snow and then Ice On The BNSF Northern Transcon
Author: Ritzville

It was a blustery Cold day with a skiff of snow, then ice pellets in Ritzville, WA on the BNSF Lakeside Sub with a high-low of 32-26 and a light dusting of snow. This Wintery mix will turn to rain tonight. Better weather on the way. Traffic was fairly steady today. Cold slippery conditions outside though. Here are some of the trains from today.

Very busy on the Lakeside sub today. Just saw that Track Geometery Train  go by a short while ago. I was sorting cars in the yard this morning for a couple hours and 8 trains went by during that time. Seems every time I turned around there was yet another mainline train coming!
