A cool video in Hot Kingman. The last time I was in Kingman, BNSF was still blowing their horns.

Tried to find this location on the satellite photo. Is the second train crossing Topeka St? Why do the mains loop away from each other like that, was there a yard in between them at one time?

that is correct as the 2nd train is crossing topeka st. and i am just e/of the crossing.

the 2nd train is on main #2 which separates from main #1 at e/griffith (approx. 8 miles w/of downtown kingman).  after the separation, main #2 takes an easier grade up thorough kingman canyon, joins back together with main #1 in downtown kingman, and then separates from again from main #1 in the video.

both main #1 and #2 come back together at the top of the hill just e/of downtown kingman.

usually, e/b's take the easier grade on main #2 BUT if the train has the h.p. to pull the grade on main #1, the dispatcher will move e/b's on main #1 too ...........

Great timing.  Which eastbound got the priority at the top?

thanks for the comments.
 
the domestic stacks had stopped just e/of griffith on main #2 for some reason and the dispatcher sent the international stacks up main #1. 

i THINK that the international stacks ran around the domestic stacks up at berry..........

It was so great to see two trains passed Kingman (Amtrak) Station and you were there in right time, so I got it same as yours in three years ago and I was on platform to take videoing of  two trains coming in within half minute. I am letting you know that I am coming to Phonenix for Christmas with my brother and his family, so I am hoping that I would like to see you for friendly chat in somewhere in Kingman. Thank you for your great sharing!
