Coal Train – BNSF 6257


Just a few quick pics I took of this train as it passed through Colorado Springs, headed north. I had walked the couple of miles or so up to Woodmen Road, but didn’t see any train traffic when I was there. But as I was walking back home, this one passed by. The train and I arrived nearly the same time, and I was on the shadow side of the tracks with little time to set up. BNSF 6257 (GE ES44AC) and BNSF 9261 (EMD SD70ACe) pull an empty coal train north. There were no DPUs on the back of this train, something I’ve started to see more on BNSF’s empty coal trains.
