Nice video of a hard working train with a Warbonnet as the caboose. Haven't seen BNSF 4003 for quite awhile in the backyard.

Wow! It is really good spot for photography and vidoeing and did you see the bird gliding high above that train, watching it goes by. My nephew has a land near there. Thanks for sharing agian.

What I love about this video is the telephoto compression.  That compression really lets you see what the engines are "feeling" in terms of a train on a grade.  In regular view, you may not sense it so much, but when compressed, you really get the idea of what the engines are up against.  Multiples levels of grades seen here--excellent video!

That was great!  I like the vantage point and telephoto crush exaggerating the grade

A very interesting video, thanks for posting.  

What struck me was the various heights of the containers.  I had thought they were uniform in that regard but this video clearly shows they aren't.
The only uniform thing is the width.

thanks for the comments everybody.  

i just happened to be cruising back from flagstaff when i went over the bridge.  at first i didn't see any trains so i continued on to seligman BUT i did see this train crawling up through crookton canyon.

i flipped a u and went back to the bridge just in time to catch it............

I too was struck by the variation in the heights of the containers. My understanding is that international boxes are 8'6" high and domestic boxes are 9'6" high. The variation in height would be caused by varying combinations of domestic boxes stacked on international boxes, or the other permutations, producing a total variation of 2 feet overall. However, the logos on the boxes all appear to be international companies (Maersk, COSCO, etc.) without any obvious domestic companies (J.B. Hunt, Schneider, etc.). Have the overseas shipping lines gone to taller boxes?

The last car looks like a former APLX 48' well container car. It has been a while since I looked but it seems impossible to find pictures of them when they had the APLX reporting marks. I can remember seeing one only once and could not get a picture.

High cube marine containers have been around for awhile now.
