BNSF Wayzata sub: volume two

Eastbound BNSF oil train taking siding Long Lake 5 4 2013
CSX run-through power can also be regularly found on the BNSF Wayzata sub along with NS units. Here we have an eastbound oil train taking the siding at Long Lake with BNSF 4936 (C44-9W) CSX 7640 (C40-8) for power. Interesting to relate, the crew of this train and that of another eastbound that was clearing the siding as this job pulled in were playing “musical chairs” with a westbound general freight.

Westbound and eastbound freights meeting Long Lake 5 4 2013
Here the second eastbound and the westbound pass each other. The former at something akin to a brisk walk; the latter at something akin to a crawl. Luce Line trail crosses bridge in background. Photo taken by Tony Held on 5-4-2013.

The westbound continues to crawl along the main track as the oil train tip-toes into the clear. Motive power is BNSF 6038 (ES44AC), BNSF 5377 (C44-9W), and BNSF 4904 (C44-9W). Photo taken by Tony Held on 5-4-2013.
Westbound freight waiting for eastbound to clear Long Lake 5 4 2013
The westbound comes to a quick stop as the long line of oil cars on the eastbound unit oil (or was it ethanol?) job straggles into the clear as the main track signal glowers red at the hogger on the westbound. Photo taken by Tony Held on 5-4-2013.
Westboud freight with clear signal 5 4 2013
All is clear now with the signal green and switch aligned for the main track again. Soon the westbound hogger will have a wheel into the train again. Photo taken by Tony Held on 5-4-2013.
