Album Info:Every year a bunch of guys from the Bay State Model Railroad Museum (bsmrm.org) take a week long railfanning trip somewhere in the USA. This year we started in Tulsa, OK and then worked our way west towards Amarillo via Oklahoma City. We then followed the BNSF line from Amarillo towards Decatur, TX before working our way back north towards Tulsa. We saw trains of the BNSF, UP and various shortlines along the way. Enjoy!
