BNSF 6201 on the Thayer North Subdivision

April 28, 2012. Diggins, Missouri.

BNSF 6201 leads an empty coal train north on the BNSF's Thayer North Subdivision, at Box School Loop Road. The train is about 20 miles from Springfield, MO. From there it will continue on to Kansas City, and then on to the Powder River Coal Basin for another load of coal.

    Thank you, trekky60 The curve with the two signals worked out well.

    Thank you, Shelly Gunderson! Until I drove through it on the day I took this photograph I had never heard of it either.
