BNSF Evenings

madsek01's picture

The evenings have been a good time to catch trains west on the BNSF out of  Superior lately. Work blocks at Carlton and Brookston seem to end around 1600  and they try to set the trains loose. Yesterday they had a Keetac empty, the Rapids Local, this coal empty heading out of town at a slow, slow pace.

Things did not go that smoothly since they had to meet a couple of eastbounds. Not having the Chub Lake siding really limits the dispatcher options, especially with the 10 and 25 mph slow orders around.
