Interesting train on the BNSF Peavine last evening
Author: PeterA

A friend saw this at Skull Valley and let me know in time to catch it coming into the Abra siding.  Never saw these FRA cars before.  Inspection trip?

I was wondering the same thing. I snagged a poor quality photo when I saw it in Mojave back on 9/7

We had a BNSF Geo train over Tehachapi yesterday, anyone know if the BNSF train is active
on UP rails?

The equipment has track geometry measurement capability.  Here's a photo I took of the same two cars headed north on the old GM&O south of Bloomington, IL on a dreary November 2019 day.  You can see the red beam of the laser hitting the track in two places underneath the car.

These cars were in Mandan, ND last year. It took six FRA contractors to operate these cars. They stayed in a very nice hotel overnight. Our tax dollars at work!
