Closer picture of 1744 (SD45 is arguably my favorite engine). Crappy patch job....

On Turkey Day, I gave thanks to be home and see two trains! At the North yard LAUDEN BNSF 5343-BNSF 8083-BNSF 7037 and DPU BNSF warbonnet 760 met the NB Stinky Slinky (Sulfur train) BNSF 971-BNSF 7845.

The next day was "honey-do" day but I managed to catch some trains....

First was the Stinky Slinky SB with BNSF 4038-BNSF warbonnet 935 DPU BNSF 5220

Finally as darkness fell and I had to take my kids sledding: DENLAU BNSF warbonnet 771-BNSF 504?-NS 8864 met AUTORACKS/COFC REROUTE? BNSF 565 SOUTH BNSF 504 added another dead Pumpkin (wouldn’t load) at Owl canyon. I couldn't wait for the 565 South...d'oh!

Wow, did not realize that....the boos were for "remote control" operations...not very popular so far....

You got your wish with the snow! Nice to see you braved the elements for some dramatic shots. It's nice to see a shot of the Rawhide train as it is seldom photographed. I also like your shot of the sulphur train on Mason, is that from video? Your last shot is really cool as well, now is this from video..... You should figure out how to post the videos in the videos section here on TO.
