Strange 765 by 205 at 1105. Bnsf leader, ns trailing. A couple thousand feet of mixed freight on the head end. Not unheard of but I haven't seen them do that in a while.

Westbound by Van Riper about 330pm with a UP leader, CN trailer and about 20-25 cars....caught the rest end going by the campground crossing....jumped in the truck to catch it west of there; alas, I went too far and the train tied down at the Peshekee Wood yard crossing( which had no cars in it by the way).

Does this train normally handle this many cars??

I heard a SB go by MP 22.5 at 2:48 am and from reading the posts above presume it was that 116.
