Rolling Ore Meet

I was out one afternoon a few weeks ago and heard a Hibtac leaving Allouez and a KEEMAD getting a new crew at Boylston. I drove west on County C hoping to get a shot of the lead Hibtac power passing the DPU on the KEEMAD but as the trains were about to pass the loads began to move slowly towards the wye and where the DPU was passed by the loads there was some tall brush. Rats. Not to be deterred I held out hope for a nice DPU meet and was lucky in that they passed at a perfect spot with no brush (I slowly paced the DPU east along C until I saw the DP on the empties getting close). Nice to see BNSF busy with ore traffic.
