BNSF Railway Passenger Train; St. Paul, MN

BNSF varnish heading up the hill at Jackson Street, soon to arrive at its destination at Minneapolis Junction. Don't know that I've ever shot a train important enough to warrant its own security escort before.

 

Consist:

BNSF 7945

BNSF 51 - Mt. Ranier

BNSF 68 - Rollins Pass

BNSF 67 - Trinchera Pass

BNSF 4 - Missouri River

BNSF 6 - Topeka

BNSF 1 - Gerald Grinstein

BNSF 35 - Canyon View

BNSF 30 - Glacier View

 

The large pole, light, and wiring on the right side of the image make for tricky shooting here - I believe it's more or less right in the middle of the shot at the optimum angle for the curves here. Oh well.
