BNSF recently held a contest on Instagram to find the prettiest winter photo. I entered a couple of my photos (but didn’t win). There hasn’t been a whole lot of winter wonderland around here to photograph trains. As luck would have it, though, we got some snow over the weekend.
My timing is bad and I wasn’t in the best position to get this train; but I do think these first couple of shots came out great — and the terrain gave me a bit different angle than I’m used to shooting.
BNSF 9172 is an EMD SD70ACe, the first of five on this train (only I didn’t a good photograph of the second one). The last three DPUs were BNSF 9369, BNSF 9011, and BNSF 9184.
