In contrast to the monster combined stack trains both BNSF and UP have found themselves running of late, this rather short 4x0 was framed climbing eastbound out of the Bristol Sink between Cadiz and Danby on the Needles Sub yesterday.

Be of good cheer,

Nice long views out there sure make whole train photography a bit easier. Thanks for sharing this one, nice image.

Great to see you out and about again!  That was a long dry spell.  Great imagery, as usual.

Considering the speed he was making on that grade, I can easily understand that sentiment.

As a engineer I can say that having 9 engines all online on a 125 car empty coal train, that might be close to being overpowered. I sure didn’t mind though.
