Snow Going, Going, Almost Gone On The BNSF--BCRail and Others
Author: Ritzville

It was a cool cloudy drippy windy(20-30mph) day in Ritzville, WA on the BNSF Lakeside Sub. The high-low was 47-33 with .01 of drips. The 10 plus inches of snow has melted off rapidly with the 40+ degree last couple of days. As of today snow is almost gone leaving swampy conditions. Traffic is at 21 trains since midnight with more on the way. Here is a look back at the last few days.

Nice series Larry. The weather looks better now. I like the BNSF ES44. We do not gave this model here for while, but Wabtech announced that it will produce some to Rumo railroad this year.

Nice shots Larry.  The snow disappeared in OK very fast as well.  Neat to see all those different paint schemes.

Wow!   A GP60B, BC Rail, and CN Cowl all together is something you wouldn't expect to see in 2021...and would've been a great catch all together even years ago.

Too bad once this train, SPOPAS, hit Providence HIll, all three of those units died. The crews had several issues getting them to run and the BCOL unit was bleeding air. Once on top of the hill the BNSF GE was able to lead the train into Pasco as the only unit online with the aid of Dispatch giving them some priority to get them off the track as they caused enough of a traffic jam already.
That combo didnt spend long in Pasco and had disappeared prior to the morning light when I went looking for them.

Thanks for that info Richard! Too bad they died on the hill, it was an interesting looking train with all the older power.

Looks like something that got loose from the Spokane Model Railroad Club.
Great coverage.
