blog, Trackside With Tony (Blog) BNSF Wayzata Sub: Volume Six July 7, 2013 Tony Here comes a westbound BNSF grain job with BNSF 7709 (ES44DC) and 6930(ES44C4) at the crew’s disposal. Photo taken on 6-9-2013 by Tony Held. Here is another view of the two units on the June 9 catch as the hogger takes the train beneath the Brown Road bridge (a span that is a staple landmark in many of my pics taken in Long Lake.) Photo by Tony Held. The June 9 catch had a bunch of colorful “tagged” smoothside covered hoppers in the consist like this one… …this one… …this baby… …this example… …this example… …this example… …and finally these babies. All photos by Tony Held. Here comes yet another westbound general freight (I really have to learn my train symbols) rumbling through Long Lake on June 19, 2013. Motive power is BNSF 5023 and 5241(both C44-9Ws.) Photo by Tony Held. Here is an eastbound freight storming through town bound for Wayzata and on into Minneapolis just after the lead units “split the signals” at the west end of the Long Lake-Wayzata siding (I can’t recall the proper name for that piece of track.) Motive power was BNSF 4306 (C44-9W) and 5694 (AC44CW.) Photo taken on June 29, 2013, by Tony Held. The same two units as they scoot out from under the pedestrian bridge over the Wayzata Sub/Hwy 12 corridor in Long Lake. Photo by Tony Held. I really composed this shot of this eastbound grain job very good; I did not need to crop it at all! Photo taken on July 6, 2013, by Tony Held. There they go, headed for the bridges carrying the Luce Line over the BNSF/Hwy 12 corridor. Motive power was BNSF 6852 and 6654 (both ES44C4s.) Photo by Tony Held. This grain job I caught on July 6 had this Grinstein Green-painted SD70MAC on the hind end as the DPU… …the road number of which was 9627. Both photos by Tony Held. You can find motive power from other railways on the Wayzata Sub. Usually they are NS and CSX units, but other roads show up as well. I also caught on July 6, 2013, this empty eastbound ballast train that the dispatcher stopped in town for a time before clearing on through. Motive power was UP 4984 and 4771 (both SD70Ms.) I am glad I caught it! Photo by Tony Held.
