Lift Bridge Storm


A very severe thunderstorm's leading edge is just passing overhead as this eastbound BNSF train pushes to get ahead and out of harms way. This storm system has produced a few tornadoes just miles away and the many lightning flashes from this cell was most likely the cause of a power outage at CP's Pig Eye Yard along with the slight flooding caused by the very heavy downpour.
