BNSF in Phoenix

BNSF 2843 in Phoenix
I'm in Phoenix, Arizona this week, and I had a little time this afternoon / evening to have a look around. Bill Linley kindly gave me the October 2009 Railroads Illustrated magazine that featured an article on BNSF in Phoenix - very timely!

I went looking for their Mobest yard in Phoenix just south of I-10. I drove around for quite a bit, following various bits of track, before I stumbled across it in the rapidly falling dark. It is not very accessible for photography but I did what I could to identify the units there. There were about 8 or 9 Geeps there plus a couple of pairs of road units.

I positively identified these units: BNSF 2843, BNSF 2648, BNSF 2829, BNSF 2945, BNSF 2958, and BNSF 7577.

I don't know how much spare time I will have this week, so I may not see any more trains here. I'm glad I got a glimpse of them!
