BNSF 2368 sits in the siding with a work train while in the distance BNSF 4110 leads a stack train west on the BNSF's Marceline Subdivision. In the distance you can see a BNSF signal maintainer waiting for BNSF 4110's train to pass.

Ex-Rio Grande 5354

July 8, 2005. Saint Louis, Missouri.

Here we see former Denver and Rio Grande Western 5354 (SD40T-2), patched as Union Pacific 8612, sitting in the Union Pacific's 12th Street Yard. I saw this locomotive during my drive into work that day, and during my lunch break I was able to walk over and snap a few shots of this locomotive. The lighting was great, but even in 2005, seeing an ex-Rio Grande unit still in Rio Grande colors was rare, today you have to go to a museum to see one.
