BNSF Flagstaff Meets – Part Three

October 28, 2010

One of the first-order ES44AC units leads an eastbound trailer train through Flagstaff. Some foreign tourists smashed a few coins and decide to throw a party on the tracks as a westbound approaches. This was also the last time I used this video camera, since it was old and pretty busted (check out how the zoom sticks). Taken on 8/7/05.

    I’ve noticed a lot less double stacks passing by where I live. There are more single stacks nowadays.

    I heard it had dropped from 70-80 a day to around 50 but I haven’t been up there long enough to really notice if it’s come back or not.

    I really enjoy these videos.

    How much rail traffic is there now days? Same amount?

    This lead unit is an ES44DC. BNSF has ES44ACs on coal trains.

    ruined it? ruined what? What was ruined by that guy and how did he ruin it? I don’t believe that anything has been ruined ‘for the rest of us’

    Unless there is something I don’t know about. Which is entirely possible. Then screw that guy for ruining it!
