BNSF 4965  Contributor's Pick!       
Westbound stacks come to rest over Hawthorne Avenue in order to swap crews. While this train is in single track territory, it is coming upon the eastern limit of Alcoa Yard, where an eastbound is waiting. The two trains traded crews here, returning the Watson crew to Watson and the Hobart crew to Hobart. On the heels of this train was a light engine move, making for a very rare train three Harbor Sub meet. Dash 9 #4965 was from the end of an order for 200 Dash 9s that were delivered in the second half of 1998.

Ted Marshall General Charles, a great catch despite the obstructions. Definitely a photo op I would've taken advantage of. 6/21/2008 1:43:39 PM
