You want to hear something funny? Or at least something that I think it sort of funny (in the sense of huh, that’s interesting). When I post pictures of Union Pacific trains, my response I get on Twitter that day is essentially crickets. The people that have followed me on Twitter seem to be only BNSF fans, so when a UP train pops up… there’s very little response.
I think UP trains look spectacular, and they’re rarer through here than BNSF trains are. But I don’t prefer one over the other, when it comes to appreciation of them. Trains are trains; and trains are cool.

I don’t know what these cars carry: Sand for fracking? Grain? Powdered concrete? Pick your favorite, and imagine it’s that.
