Coal Train – BNSF 5925

IMG_9455

BNSF 5925, a GE ES44AC engine, leads an empty coal train through Colorado Springs. It’s followed by sister ES44AC, BNSF 5752.

Incidentally, these hoppers will be transporting coal to an Xcel Energy power plant. This sign on the hopper caught my eye as the train passed, and I had to laugh. Health and Safety departments just don’t have enough to do, I guess:

Operating as distributed power units at the end of this train was another pair of GE ES44ACs: BNSF 5883 (I think — I didn’t get the number clear enough), and BNSF 5865.
