BN 6325 West Hatton, WA 1993
Author: BrianA

BN #11 is westbound at Hatton, WA on the ex-NP between Spokane and Pasco 6-12-93 at 11:32 AM with SD40-2's 6325/7801/8129/7122 up front.  This is one of the few times I let the entire train pass by.  Wish I had done so with more!

Great stuff! I think Hatton was close to where the SP&S 700 blew a right side valve ring way back in the early 2000's ?..

Yes, think it was between Hatton and Cunningham, and the ex-Santa Fe SD40 was added to the point.  Luckily I first shot it in the coulees west of Hatton before it broke down.

Thanks Brian, great video.  Loved the sound of that quartet of EMDs going by.

Great catch of the 6325 leading.  Many know this engine became BN 1976 for the Bicentennial celebration, got damaged in a wreck and became
1876.  And your video shows it got the "whiteface" scheme before the merger.  Many don't know it's the first SD40-2 delivered to the BN.  Some claim
it's actually the first SD40-2 period, although KCS 636, IIRC, is generally given that honor.   And it's still around on the BNSF although I can't recall
it's new numbers.  Thanks for posting.

Awesome sound!  The bass is really cool and something that still hasn't been captured by model sound systems.

Thank you for sharing this Brian!  This is the era I think of when I remember BN.  It is fascinating to see the differences in the intermodal equipment used from 27 years ago.

Some of that same equipment is still in use today. Nice video before Burlington Northern Santa Fe.
