Built in June, 1962, it had been in service for thirty three years when I got this shot. It worked for BNSF until 2013, according to what I could find out, and finally hit the deadline in Saginaw Tx in 2014. I’m not sure of it’s status today, but, it did have a pretty good service record, I think.

One thermometer says it’s 102 and the other shows 105 outside. I’ll split the differance and call it 103. Remembering this morning in March 2013 when it wasn’t quite that warm on the way to Tehachapi. Southbound (eastbound) between Monolith and Eric when BNSF ACe’s were not so common out west, let alone on the point. Nice…I feel a wee bit cooler already.

It has been quite a relief to have the smoke blown away, which before caused very hazy conditions and just poor air quality. It is also great to be able to see the mountains once again. Case and point, the foothills, Longs Peak, and Mount Meeker can be seen in the background as BNSF C44-9W No. 4365 leads the Cheyenne-Denver manifest south around my favorite curve in Louisville, Colorado, on September 2, 2018.
