interesting: Domestic 4x3x2 stacks in low light.........
Author: goneon66

here is an e/b 4x3x2 DOMESTIC stacks crawling up through valentine, az on the bnsf's seligman sub just before sunset.

i have been seeing domestic stacks in a 4x4x0 configuration lately but this is the first time i have seen domestic stacks in a 4x3x2 configuration.

it was sure interesting seeing what was happening when the 2 z trains "ran around" this long and heavy stack train prior to the video..............

Nice. Thank you for sharing! 215 cars/platforms. Nice array of containers.

I was at that crossing yesterday from 4:30 to 6 and was rewarded by 9 trains in that hour and a half.  Here is a cellphone video of a WB military train.

Very NICE low light video of a LONG train with lots of power. That's the most power I've seen on a Mega train.

 Nice video Juan. It looks like you had some extra lighting based on the reflections on the Scotchbrite loco striping.

Yeah I found that interesting too, so I did a quick search: https://www.matson.com/logistics/transportation/intermodal.html

Apparently Matson Logistics says "For dedicated capacity, we offer a new fleet of Matson private 53’ high-cube containers." And they arrange drayage.

I wonder if they also have a crossdock or warehouse in California somewhere to transfer from their ocean boxes to their 53s. Funny to see that one lonely ocean can in that consist too.

And to have that many trucks on the highways would make things even worse.
