Ahhh, To Be A Kid Again!
I’m king of the world!
Holbrook Arizona was the scene of this fast moving BNSF freight being enjoyed by this future engineer!
Traveling at an estimated speed of around 70 MPH, this freight is traveling through one of the few towns in Arizona with no slow curves or permanent speed restrictions.
Being so close to the grade crossing is definitely not for the faint or that safe for that matter.
Freights in this area are limited to 70 MPH, but Amtrak are cleared to go as fast as 90 MPH. Imagine the danger at these grade crossings!
Let us know if you have a high speed crossing in your town. We would love to hear about your experience.
