Coal

As I was driving home last week, this looked like a nice shot. Parked the car and went for a short walk. It was a warm afternoon. This location is about halfway between the two "normal spots" that are usually good for train pictures. Nice to have the 3 locomotives heat-to-tail for photogenic purposes even though they are not unidirectional (operationally). Two ET44C4's followed by a ES44C4. The coal is coming from the Powder River Basin (Montana and Wyoming) heading to Roberts Bank (British Columbia).

Great photo John! The weather looks great there.

How long are these coal trains, do you know?
