KCS3925 with EMDX7204 (Yellow/White) are engines for the BNSF UALTBAR1 13M (KCS DCSAL-10 from Camp Shelby, MS to Alliance, TX) heading to Barstow, CA. The train is currently at Grier, located west of Clovis, NM. It should be passing Belen overnight, and hopefully Flagstaff in the daylight hours. Happy hunting!  :)

The train departed Carnero, NM, located 10 miles west of Vaughn. Should arrive Belen around the midnight hour or a little bit after. Happy hunting!  :)

Update as of 08:00 MDT,
The consist stays the same for the first two (KCS and EMDX), however a BNSF ES44AC was added third LHF in the consist somewhere between Amarillo and Belen. It is currently at Winslow performing a crew change before advancing west. Happy hunting!  :)

Update as of 12:45PM MDT,
The train has finally left Winslow due to M1 being out of service causing Main 2 being bi-directional. Furthermore, lots of Eastbound priority trains caused the delay to a few trains heading westbound. The military will pass no later than 2:30PM MDT.

Will it make it to Barstow before dark with all this traffic on M1 being low priority?

Thanks

I honestly don't think it will be able to get to Barstow in the daylight hours. I expect it to arrive very early tomorrow morning. It managed to stay sitting at Winslow for about 2-3 hours more than normal. It is picking up speed and is moving behind a Z, so hopefully that will give it some wiggle room to improve speed. Train nearing Canyon Diablo as of 13:25 MDT.

Thanks for all your help I was really hoping to catch it today I am currently sitting in Cadiz. I was debating on heading towards Flagstaff but it is 300 miles from my location.

Glad you were able to get it! Train is at Franconia, 20 miles east of Needles. Looking like it will arrive Barstow around 4-6AM.
