BNSF playing catchup on the transcon tnt?
Author: pdt

Flagstaff VR cam......
BNSF running trains (mostly doublestacks) tonight like theyre going out of style.   Most trains running with 4 to 6 big GE's up front.  Some H1 paint, 1 red/silver, some pool power.....

I only say this cause ive never seen this many trains in just a few hours on this cam....and not many DPU's either...

Sounds like a normal night on the transcon.

Yes on the Flagstaff cam they run like streetcars. Busier than Cajon.

Stop and think about this for a moment.  At Barstow, the northern and southern California portions of the "Transcon" come together, so there should be more traffic in Flagstaff than Cajon.  Just logical.

One observation from the Gallup railcam. Seems like several unit coal trains going west were given priority right after the strike was averted.

I'm just a casual oberver who lurks from time to time, but I was surprised to see less stack trains and intermodals out and about.
