Mixed Freight — BNSF 9089

img_4777

This EMD SD70ACe, BNSF 9089, leads a line of very mixed freight north. Helping out was BNSF 7827, a GE ES44AC, and BNSF 8036, a GE ES44C4 which I last saw in January when playing in the snow with my daughter. It was the lead locomotive then; but on this day, it was pulling DPU duty.

When it first cleared the signal, I thought it was an unit oil train — but it didn’t take long to see that mixed freight is a perfect term. Center beams, short gondolas and beat up hoppers were among the manifest.
