Very nice share of Belen action. The last time I was there the SD45's were in the 1800 series and the caboose track was packed with active crummies. Thanks for sharing.

Fine evocative photos there. Thank you. Passenger service to Belen is provided by the New Mexico Railrunner Express. Roadrunner is the state bird. Just to make the distinction.

Light Power would be one of Albuquerque's transfer jobs picking up Northbay stacks and (what looks like) Los Angeles pig setouts.

Interesting shots and videos, thanks for posting.  Some comments if I may.  

The bridge over the Gallup Sub, the green structure, is new, I had not seen that before.  And notice that it and the older bridge south of the Railrunner station have
acquired the anti-vandal fencing which makes photography tough!  

The Belen sign is obviously for the Railrunner, but Hadley?  That's a new one on me.  When did that go in?  

The Abluquerque job looked like a lot of UPS boxes and there is a "ramp" there.  And catching a fully painted Santa Fe hopper was really good as they have become
increasingly hard to find.

Actually, the northeast side of the bridge south of the Rail Runner station has some elevated locations where you can photograph from without a fence, even has one with shade! The south side indeed has a fence that you have to shoot through obviously to prevent vandals from throwing rocks or other debris onto the engines or into the yard.
