Can someone post a system-wide schedule ? That would be helpful.

Good looking train despite the weather. And I guess we just have to pretend the 'hi-level' cars are ex-El Cap... ;^)

Lance, There was just a post about the BNSF snow coaches they are putting into service. They are reaquired El-Cap cars that were bought from AMTRAK. I thought maybe they would be in this train for shake-down and movement up north but it was not to be.
