A Three Digit Scorcher On The BNSF Lakeside Sub
Author: Ritzville

It was just HOT with a hot wind of 15-25mpg in Ritzville, WA on the BNSF Northern Transcon. The high-low was 102-67 so far. I know this would be a cool day in Arizona, lol, but it is tough in Washington. The hot wind is very hard on the lawn and flowers. Really not a good day for pictures. Traffic has been only 17 trains since midnight with more on the way.
Here are some trains from yesterday and today.

7/29/2020

1. EB 208pm 3x2x0 Mega manifest train with BNSF 4071-6530-3974 on the point with DPU's and a friendly toot-toot from the hogger.
2. Long line of reefers on same train.
3. Middle DPU's BNSF 7998 and CSXT 290 on same train.

That Coca-Cola van was a hoot! I wonder if Pepsi has an answer for it... :^)

Neat shots today.  Good looking mid-train DPUs with the reefer block.
