Magnificent of GE power on BNSF is amazing and awesome !!!

A redistribution of power units is a great catch if you are a true railfan. Here you have 28 BNSF units heading through Flagstaff, Arizona.

These locomotives are most likely to be sold and/or rehabbed and purchased for short line or overseas use.

A rare catch as a “consist” of 28 locomotives put on quite a display!

All of the locomotive units are weighing in at approximately 400,000 pounds giving the train a total of 5,600 tons of weight!

Some railroad terms:

  1. Consist- a group or formation of locomotives and/or railcars.
  2. DIC-dead in consist- deadheading or having no power turned on.
  3. DIB-delay in block- if you stop or slow to below 10mph, you have to be prepared to stop at the next signal.

Let us know if you have ever seen a grouping of locomotives being transported in a procession such as this! It must be awesome to see!
