blog, Trackside With Tony (Blog) BNSF Wayzata sub: Volume Five July 7, 2013 Tony BNSF dispatch loves to halt trains in Long Lake, MN, and not just on the siding, too. At times the trains they stop right on the main track yield terrific catches like this one on May 31, 2013! Photo by Tony Held. The motive power on this May 31, 2013 catch of mine was a trio of ex-BN units … … 8100 and 8103 (SD60Ms), and 1916 (SD40-2.) Both photos by Tony Held. Here is one of three interesting freight cars I found on this stopped eastbound freight with the ex-BN power. This is Rail Gon gondola 29658. Photo by Tony Held. Here is a new BNSF gondola, 516196, complete with “swoosh” logo. Photo by Tony Held. This hopper car was the third interesting freight car I saw on the May 31 catch, AGPX 12057. It was “tagged” with some vibrant –but clean– graffiti! It got parked half under the Brown Road bridge when the hogger stopped the train for the red signal. Photo by Tony Held. Here comes another eastbound general freight, one BNSF dispatch is letting roll right through town. It has BNSF 5032 (C44-9W) and 7321 (ES44DC) on the point. Photo taken on 6-3-2013 by Tony Held.. Here are the two units again as the hogger takes the train east. Photo by Tony Held. Here comes the DPU unit on this train, BNSF 6117 (an ES44AC.) It is emerging from beneath the Brown Road bridge. Photo by Tony Held. Another look at the 6117. Photo by Tony Held. Before the DPU appeared I saw this tagged BNSF hopper sporting the old logo … …this very well tagged ex-Southern boxcar… …and these two lightly graffiti-clad ex-BN ribside hoppers. All three photos by Tony Held. Westbound thunder! Here comes a westbound general freight (I really need to learn the train symbols for the Wayzata sub!) rumbling through Long Lake on the 69th anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 2013. Photo by Tony Held. There goes the motive power on what I dubbed the “D-Day anniversary express”, ducking under Brown Road. The crew had BNSF 4108 (C44-9W) and 7688 (ES44DC) for power. Photo by Tony Held. I spotted these tagged boxcars in the string of cars hanging off the knuckle of the rear unit … …along with these specimens. Freight yards and other open access rail areas sure bring out the street artists. Photo by Tony Held.
