Burlington Northern Santa Fe

Photos by Mike Condren

On my way to Springdale and the monthly meeting of the Boston Mountain Chapter of NRHS, I stopped at the site of the former KCS depot in Siloam Springs, AR to finish my supper and hopefully photograph a passing train. After about 5 minutes I heard the horn of a southbound train, this loaded unit coal train.

Then comes the BNSF unit as the single DPU pushing on the rear for all it is worth on Oct. 17, 2011.

The northbound takes siding for a southbound unit coal train with BNSF power and no DPUs in this flat country in Texarkana on Oct. 7, 2011.
