Late #3, BNSF Geometry Train Yesterday
Author: mg8711

Despite gloomy, unphotogenic weather I got out yesterday to see the almost 12 hour late Amtrak train #3, the westbound Southwest Chief. As a bonus it met an eastbound BNSF Track Geometry train at Osage City, KS and I was able to get it as well before heading home.

1-2) AMTK 186 and 9 lead #3 west at Jordan Road on the north side of Carbondale, KS. Despite being a westbound, the train is actually facing southeast here.

3) Down the road at Scranton, KS, BNSF 4156 leads a its two car track geometry train east, it will terminate at Topeka.

Nice shots!  Is #3 just 7cars counting the baggage car?  Just two sleepers and two coaches.

Thanks.
