Continuing a series on efforts behind the viewfinder a contemporary look at the BNSF Sub, the old CB&Q as it leads downgrade east from Denver. It’s an interesting and exciting area to see trains, often a parade 5-10 trains.
Grain elevators, sun flowers and sunsets
Wide open spaces
Keenesburg like most of the little towns along I/76 are loaded with vintage structures from a bygone era. The Denver COOP Association stands prominently trackside.
Amtrak’s California Zephyr is a regular visitor and when it’s on the ATCS everyone dives into sidings waiting. Here Amtrak is flying past Barr Lake.
Keenesburg Curve a favorite for generations of rail photographers
High stepping intermodal in the very same spot those magnificent Colorado class M4’s used to battle the grades into Denver.
Congested and busy, the Brush Sub is a vibrant busy route. Worth a look if your in the area.
At the beginning of all of this is a feast of engineering and structures at the Suncor energy refinery near Sand Creek Junction
Great storm shots in the Spring
The CZ is just serving breakfast as it rolls through the golden prairie east of Roggen at sunrise
Drama awaits your camera on the Brush Subdivision but always play it safe guys stay off the tracks and respect the no trespassing signs both private and railroad
I hope you guys enjoyed a quick peek at what I’ve been up too. It’s a fun hobby and I try to keep it fun and rewarding sometimes it’s a huge effort to get up long before sunrise especially in the summer at 0345 to reach locations at first light. It was worth it and I plan to keep going as long as I can
