MP 148 by classictrains MP 148 by classictrains
148 miles from Chicago an eastbound BNSF mixed freight cruises below the Mississippi River bluffs just north of Savanna. I know, I know... it's going south... but it's railroad east. LOL.

And for all you railroad modelers... you can see the whole Enchilada... signals, signal box, wiring, the whole mess.

Such an oddball angle, but really cool! Rarely do you get to see trains from this angle or elevation.

I've been trying to figure out how to steal a caboose and put it in my back yard - but now there aren't any cabeese around anymore to steal! I guess it took me too long to make a plan . . .

If you really want one... they are available... shipping and handling bites though.

According to my dad who works at BNSF some people once stole an entire signal house to sell it for scrap. :(

Found a shot of a pre-merger Burlington Northern train. [link]

I hate it when people do stuff like that. It's what gets the cops excited when they see people hanging around the tracks.

My favourite story is still the one in which they steal teletherapy equipment, selling it for scrap... The outcome was quite catastrophic: [link]

There was actually a similar, but not as serious incident at Fermilab. Someone stole and sold for scrap some wiring which had been used in accelerator magnets and was radioactive as a result. I don't recall that anyone was actually harmed but it was pretty easy to find where the wire had been stored and carried on the way to the scrap dealer.
