Trying To Catch Up On The BNSF and They Are Back!--GMTX 2692
Author: Ritzville

It was a sunny hazy day in Ritzville, WA on the BNSF Lakeside Sub with a high-low of 53-30. Very dry, need some rain. Traffic was fairly steady with a several hour work window in the morning, 23 trains since midnight. Many more on the horizon. On the morning of Nov. 5th looked out the back door and there was MoW camped back out in the backyard once again. They have been frequent visitors these past months. Unfortunately they block the sunny side of the track for pictures. Today looking at Monday and part of Tuesday. Looks like it will take awhile to catch up.

Lots of action today.  Really neat to see the lone unit running around on the pass.  And I suppose we are all getting used to all the track equipment.

I saw a similar BN hopper in Belen yesterday with a date of new 5-70 but the paintwork had faded on it but there was no graffiti

There must have been many hundreds of BN hoppers painted in the early 1970s and many can still be seen around today
