At the diesel facility a BNSF unit is being worked on.   GP39 #4287 in the background and  GP38-2 #2500

Slug set pauses on the west end of the yard.   BNSF units make a pick up at the eastbound hump.    Nice B40-8 as the second unit.   This was a train that made a pick up and continued onto Selkirk.

Power sets ties onto their train to double to head east.   BNSF SD60M and an ex MP/UP NREX SD40-2.   

Thats all for today's visit.

Good historic pics.  Most of those scenes are completely gone now, as CSX has stripped away any major role for Willard.  No humps in use.  Many trains operate thru without changing crews.  Some block swapping.  Little car repair.  Many many jobs abolished.

Really nice set of pick from Willard in better times, I was there a few weeks ago and it looked almost abandoned😟
