Crowded at Birmingham Junction
BNSF 9833 works as a DPU on an east bound coal train, while a Norfolk Southern train and another BNSF train wait their turn to roll through Birmingham Junction. The BNSF's Brookfield Subdivision and the Norfolk Southern's Kansas City District share tracks between North Kansas City, Missouri and Birmingham, Missouri.
Way back when I took this image, Birmingham Junction was easily accessible. The last time I was there around 2013 or 2014, the access road, from which I took this image, was closed off and no trespassing signs were posted.
This image was captured on Kodak 400 Royal Gold film and scanned on a Nikon Coolscan film scanner. The resulting scan was saved as a Nikon NEF RAW file, which was then post processed in Adobe Camera RAW and Adobe Photoshop.
