BNSF K-ALTALT1-23 Tests Tier IV ET44C4's
After work I grabbed the camera and headed to Metro to get-the-shot. I arrived just in time as the power was departing southbound for GE. BNSF Tier IV No. 3916 was the first and only one to be previously released from the GE plant and it had wandered off-line for testing. The units today would be the first pair of production BNSF Tier IV's to operate together outside of the GE plant.
The low speed testing allowed me to get shots at five locations between Metro, Texas and Justin, Texas. The lighting was not bad at all!
At Justin the K-ALTALT1-23 held for a better signal indication. The last shots of the day were of the train ahead, Tulsa, OK to Teague, TX train H-TULTEA1-22 pulling the grade on Main Track 3 at North Haslet--right by the edge of the current runway at Alliance Airport.
