From Thanksgiving To December On The BNSF Lakeside Sub
Author: Ritzville

It was a cold cloudy day with a dusting of snow in Ritzville, WA on the BNSF Northern Transcon. The high-low was 33-25 with a dusting of snow. I've combined several days due to Thanksgiving weekend activities. Traffic was fairly steady today. Here are some trains from Thursday to today.

Nice SP shot to share.  Good to see you are feeding the birds.  Sure not much temperature range.
