Wayback Wednesday: First Successful Railfan


Santa Fe and Burlington Northern units

It’s been over three years now since I’ve started this blog, can you believe it? They’ve made their presence felt, though, that’s for sure.

I decided to have a “Wayback Wednesday” today (fairly certain it’s a thing) to the first time I caught a train when I was trackside. Afterwords, it took me forever to find the footage and post it to Youtube, so it’s older than its posting date by at least a year. Anyways, the train was BNSF’s Chrysler Turn, and it was pulled by an ex-ATSF GP-38 and an ex-BN GP-38 (made it seem like the merger was just yesterday). They switched the local chemical plant and then pulled their entire train back to their starting point at Lindenwood yard. Enjoy!
