Drag Racing stackers
Title:  Drag Racing stackers
Description:  These two westbound stackers are racing at track speed in this image. Really wish I'd had a video camera at this moment. The location is West Colton on the BNSF San Bernardino Sub (as opposed to the more famous West Colton on the UP Alhambra Sub), and the two trains are both about to cross over Fogg Street. The GEVO is moving ever so slightly faster, but not enough that I'll ever find out what is behind that Oakway SD60. Meanwhile, the Warbonnet Dash 9, Goatboat and two H2s are leading a train that I had just seen pass through A Yard and the platforms of the San Bernardino Harvey House Depot. Dash 9 #668 was delivered to the Santa Fe in September of 1994, while "Power Bar" ES44DC #7584 was delivered to the BNSF in June 2007.
