Willmar, MN --to-- Drayton, ND empty unit grain train at night...
Author: jmulhol2

A pair of C4's power this 116-car Willmar, MN --to-- Drayton, ND ("CHS Inc." grain elevator) westbound (geographically northbound) empty unit grain train in a 2x0 power configuration as it is seen here zooming past MP96 on the BNSF Hillsboro Subdivision in Grand Forks, ND, during the nighttime hours of 06/16/2024. This train had earlier come off the "Breck Line" (i.e., the BNSF Moorhead Subdivision), held at Moorhead Jct. for traffic to clear the mainline, and then proceeded to tie down at "Bison Siding" until a later outbound crew (seen here) came and un-tied the train to continue onward.

Train symbol: X-WLMDRA

Power:
BNSF #8169 (GE ES44C4; built: ??/2014)
BNSF #7946 (GE ES44C4; built: 01-02/2015)
