Taken on Saturday morning on the way to work.

The mountains and the desert. Buck should be familiar with a couple of these shots!

Great Northern and offspring

Posted by retiredpo1 on 11/28/2009

First things first. The logo is out of my child hood and my sister’s. When we were kids, trains had that goat on the front. He has a name, Rocky. The steam locomotive is the only Baldwin S-2 Northern left. When I was just out of diapers, that locomotive was on the local from Havre to Malta. There are three Hills in Montana, Up Hill, Down Hill and Jim Hill.
And last but not least, a BNSF Stack Train going up the hill from Barstow/Lenwood to the Cajon Summit. The locomotives are painted…………….Great Northern Orange. Santa Fe? Yeah. Right.
Have a Rocky day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
