Author: jmulhol2

A heavy 2x2 northbound loaded "frac" sand unit train is seen here thunderously passing ~MP70 on the BNSF Front Range Subdivision in South Fort Collins, CO, during the nighttime hours of 1/12/2022. This train will head a few miles down the track before terminating at North Yard. The head end motor (BNSF #5691) and the rear end motor (BNSF #5018) will run light power northbound to Cheyenne, WY, after the train is tied down at North Yard. 

Total # of axles = 424 (4 motors; 100 cars)

Power:
BNSF #5691 (GE AC44CW; built: 03/2004)
BNSF #8361 (GE ES44C4; built: ??/????)
x
BNSF #600   (Rebuilt GE AC44C4M; built: 02/1994; ex-ATSF motor)
BNSF #5018 (GE C44-9W; built: 8/2004)
