BNSF 4543
Title:  BNSF 4543
Description:  BNSF stack trains swap crews on the 190th Street Bridge, aka the eastern limit of Alcoa Yard. The Hobart based crew has brought 4965 to Torrance, whlie the Watson based crew has brought 4543 up. This crew swap was a somewhat rare move, usually made because one of the crews (probably Hobart) was at risk of dying on the law. Dash 9 4543 was part of BNSF's 1999 order for 299 more of the ubiquitous units, making it only about six months old in this shot.
