|Eastbound manifest east of town, and passing our motel, at 7:57 AM in the morning. We were staying at the Flagstaff Travel Lodge on Route 66, which is one of dozens of "Railfan-Heaven" places to stay in Flagstaff. Roll out of bed, grab a cup of coffee, and enjoy the Transcon in that glorious Northern Arizona morning light. Here, we see a collection of Dash 9s. The lead unit, #4567, arrived from the GE shops in Erie, PA in late 1999 as part of an order of 299 units. BNSF has nearly 1,700 of these units, I believe. Sort of boggles the mind.
