MAC Daddy on the Point

After being stored, BNSF's  SD70MACs are seen again on the MRL, usually on coal trains, but nearly always trailing. Yesterday gave me the perfect motivation to follow a coal train up the hill, and catch some of the beautiful fall color on Mullan Pass after a snow.

A few days ago, trailing again.

Trailing on a vehicle train, but encouragingly in brand new H3 paint.

BNSF 8837 W.  PGEX loads, crewed up, waiting for its helper to get out to Helena Jct. before departing.

Sounded pretty damn good with two EMDs in the consist.

The Tobin sag.

Peekaboo up Seven Mile Creek, Hogback Mountain in the Big Belts in the background.
