New Railcars

Watching the La Plata railcam lately, on Monday and Tuesday this week, I saw what appeared to be a BNSF coal train, with the usual coal gons. But they all had some kind of cover on them, with what appeared to be vents in the end of the lids. Never saw this before. One in each direction. Anyone know ...

Re: Crude Oil storage in Railcars

The glut of crude, including millions of barrels stored in ships, didn't stop them from raising gas prices 50 cents a gallon overnight. Thursday prices averaged $1.39 and today they are $1.89.

Re: Pedestrian Hit By GDLK Train in Kalamazoo Yesterday.

I always wonder if people are really that stupid or suicidal. How can you not hear a train horn so close behind you, even with ear buds in.

Re: COVID-19 Poll
