This has been my first major winter, where I have been able to see at least three trains per week compared to last year where I only saw about 3 trains every three weeks. With all the Western Coal, I have been seeing more coal trains with BNSF power, than I have seen General Merchandise! So I figured I'd post my BNSF power shots, after all BNSF is one of my favorite Paint schemes. The following dates and links will contain the different Western Coal trains that I have shot in South Lyon.
