After a frustrating day of bad timing for train photos, I saw this Xcel Energy unit coal train pulling onto the siding. I went to the north side of the siding and waited.
BNSF 6225, a GE ES44AC, was in the lead and crept around the bend. BNSF 9375 is an EMD SD70ACe. The 120 or so empty coal hoppers trailed out around the bend behind the lead engines.
And when it came to a stop, I snagged a couple of photos of these amazing machines.
