Belen NM yard near intermodal crane looks like new construction?
Author: gmojim

In past few weeks looks like the area along side the intermodal crane and auto rack ramp has been cleared. Noticed lights in the area much brighter. Today  looks like a stack of panel track there. Anyone have info on what is planned with this area?

I wouldn't be surprised as BNSF, and Santa Fe, regularly ran, runs, turns from Belen to Albuquerque with both auto, UPS and other hot intermodal traffic from Albuquerque set outs at Belen destined Albuquerque. SEEMS like rubber tire would be faster?

This is exactly what I thought when I saw them working on this area. That crane is only used to change out loads from bad order railcars.

I heard the TOFC at Hadleys will go away. It all has to do with increasing the current infrastructure to accommodate bigger trains all the way to Jarales on the East end.
