The KCT will build another 75 car unit scrap train later today, which will leave town as BNSF Train U KCKHKM0 02T with a trio of engines. The ES44C4 was built in February 2014, the newest unit I've run in probably 4 years. Days like these are when my job is downright fun.
At 121 days old (at the time of the photo), this engine already had 30,467 miles on the odometer. That's roughly 250 miles a day and an average speed of 10 MPH. Not too bad, really, when you think of how long a train can sit stopped.
An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
