MRL-BN Moment
Title:  MRL-BN Moment
Description:  While it's not entirely evident with the haze, there is nothing but MRL & BN power seen here. First, C-SCMCEC is headed east passing a set of engines set out on the wye while in the background, ML has tied down their train (with MRL SD70Ace) and cranked up a BN Geep sitting in the yard, which they were forced to use to perform unadvertised & unannounced switching that the BNSF crew left undone for ML's pickup.

MRL ML w/Six Motors
Title:  MRL ML w/Six Motors
Description:  They got here somewhere around 1300hrs & it is now 1800hrs....they are STILL not ready to go, but need headroom out of the yard to perform another switching move. The straight set out/pick up that normally takes 30 minutes or less was not to be had today. BNSF evidently left them more work than they could have ever hoped for in the yard, I am pretty sure they moved each & every car around a dozen times.

MRL 332
Title:  MRL 332
Description:  My helper picked up these five SD45's in Bozeman after they went over as PA (power assist) units on various trains. The 332 and 319 have only been in service for 1 week in their brand new paint and already the 332 looks like a regular helper. The 319 was the west leader most of the week and managed to dodge the grime and still has a shine. Thanks to my wife for getting this shot as I came in on this helper on the back of the M-SPOLAU with this huge (cool) consist.

MRL 308
Title:  MRL 308
Description:  These SD45-2s were perfectly good and shipped from Livingston, MT to International Terminals for scrap. This was the absolute best (only) angle you could shoot without going behind enemy lines. The fourth unit back is #314. All appeared untouched although the cab door on the third unit back is open.
