A Train of Just Engines

Imagine what a load this set of engines could move if they were all running and they are all the same.

Huge 28-Unit BNSF Power Move! 123,200 Combined Horsepower!

And hey, it’s Pap-paw’s railroad, as my son used to call it when he was younger!

Anyway.... It’s an interesting video because, even though I live in an area with a lot of railroad activity, I’ve never seen a power move like this. Also, this is the land of NS and CN, with KCS operating just outside of town. The only time I see BNSF is when the huge coal drags move through town using CN trackage and probably CN crews as well.

Yeah, Pap-paw is my wife’s stepfather, who retired from BNSF in 2018.
