a slow "colorful" crawl up the canyon for saturday.........
Author: goneon66

those who enjoy long slow manifests, here ya go:

this afternoon, i caught this 4x1x1 e/b manifest slowly crawling up main #2 in kingman canyon on the bnsf's seligman sub.

my guess is that the sd40-2 is probably not on-line.

since this is a long train, i made it 2 videos.

this is the first video that ends at the mid-dpu..................

Nice long train with a colorful point. I like the BNSF 1894 and the Kingman Canyon as a backdrop.

Yes, nice videos, thanks for posting.  The 1894 is an ex-Santa Fe engine as it is a snoot, probably going somewhere for local service.  (The BN didn't own any snoots)  I'm thinking this is a little below Holy Moses Wash and you are a brave person, shooting across the canyon parked next to old 66!  (The traffic noise gave that away.)
