Rolling Thru The Week On The BNSF Northern Transcon
Author: Ritzville

It was a mild partly cloudy day in Ritzville, WA on the BNSF Lakeside Sub. The high-low was 68-45. Rain is onthe way, which we need badly. Traffic is at 28 train since midnight with more on the way. Here's a small sample of trains thru the week. The better ones always seem to run at night, lol.

Hi Larry, great trains you had this week. The blue GATX car is nice. I hope it can be clean for a long time. The old picture of Pacific Electric is also great. Thanks for sharing it with us.
