Burlington Northern Santa Fe


Most of the trains we see in this area are from the Norfolk Southern Railroad (Catfish). I was happy to find this Burlington Northern Santa Fe engine sitting on the tracks in a nearby town a few days ago. It had two Catfish engines hooked behind it.

I'd like to thank everyone who participated in Sky Watch yesterday. I've never seen such beautiful pictures of the sky. If you didn't visit everyone on the list you missed some really good ones.

When I'm stopped at a train crossing, I always wonder what type of freight the train is carrying and where it might be going.

These are nice train engines and my grandson who has autism loves trains and knows everything there is to possibly know about them and signals and bells and the whole works.

I grew up waking up or hearing the sounds of the D&U train that went by our house twice each day. Those sounds and smells and the sounds and smells from the blacksmith shop were as familiar to me as traffic on the interstate would be to youngsters today.

Nice photos.

Heh, I am SOOOOO sorry I have not been stopping by your site on a daily basis like I used to. I have barely had time to put up a post here and there on my own site! I do so love the pictures of this train. Such vibrant colors! :)
Oh, I posted a short video clip on my main blog of my puppy Kira! :)

As the son of a railway employee, I love your railway pictures!

I just have to start publishing some myself.

How about Railway Monday?

Have a great weekend!

Wow!!Thats an old paint scheme Dot. I think they called that the "War Bonnett" look after the older Santa Fe locomotives. This is a Dash9 model. It is written just above the front drive wheels. The NS have their models just under the windows. I am not sure what model it is though. Maybe a SD40 or 50..Love those trains!! Great shot!!

Love the train pictures. When I was young I was fascinated by them.

Sorry I missed the Sky Watch yesterday - your photos are breathtakingly beautiful. I have some family issues to take care of for the next few weeks and will return after then to participate again.

I'm sending my Christmas wishes early this year as I will be away from blogland for a few weeks!

Have a wonderful holiday and best wishes for 2008!

I like trains too, been after Nevada to buy me a train so i can put it around the living room and into the office. But so far no luck

And yes there was some really pretty photos out there yesterday. I tried to get to every one on the list and some off the list.

Concerning a possible Railroad Monday : I may come back to it sometime in the future when I have better time on my hands.

Paulie said...

The BNSF runs thru here also -- in fact, they have a huge railroad yard here in Vancouver, WA. I have taken a few railroad photos and when Runee gets his Monday theme going, I would join too!

Just catching up on reading posts since I was so busy Saturday and Sunday. . .
