At 11:52 on July 15, 2007 I caught No. 6 returning to her one car train at the Base Station for another run up the hill.

I stopped by BNSF’s Topeka, KS shops today to check out BNSF’s LNG Test Set. The SD70ACe’s are the BNSF 9130 and 9131, while the tank car is the BNSF 933501. Amazingly, the two test cars average out to being 100 years old, with the Kootenai River and Canyon Diablo having been built about a century ago. Certainly interesting that these ANCIENT cars are integral parts of the testing of brand new technology.

Unfortunately, the sun never really came out today, but this stuff is worth shooting no matter what. There were a number of workers on the equipment today setting up testing monitors and sensors for their upcoming trips.

Just thought that some of you would appreciate the glimpse of this set.

With storms brewing to the east, three GE C30-7s and a pair of KCS SD40-2s power a westbound Burlington Northern coal train departing Guernsey, Wyoming, on the Canyon Subdivision on July 4, 1988. The empty train is headed back to Powder River Basin for loading and is crossing the North Platte River in the background.

Bubbly Creek is the nickname given to the South Fork of the South Branch of the Chicago River. It runs entirely within the city of Chicago, Illinois, U.S. It marks the boundary between the Bridgeport and McKinley Park community areas of the city. The creek derives its name from the gases bubbling out of the riverbed from the decomposition of blood and entrails dumped into the river in the early 20th century by the local meatpacking businesses surrounding the Union Stock Yards directly south of the creek’s endpoint at Pershing Road. It was brought to notoriety by Upton Sinclair in his exposé on the American meat packing industry entitled The Jungle.
