MWR - railfanning the Mountain West!

Stevens Pass by Scott Borchardt
These pictures were taken during the second week of October 2000 on Stevens Pass just as the trees were beginning to change colors.

BNSF 4518 East leads two other BNSF C44-9W's just east of the siding at Baring next to the Skykomish river.

This is the same train as above coming over the Gaynor trestle which is a few miles east of the East Portal of the Cascade Tunnel and the siding at Berne.

Two BNSF SD40-2's and a EMD SD60 (which is just out of the picture) are about to enter the West Portal of the 7.8 mile long Cascade Tunnel.

A better view of the Gaynor trestle with another set of BNSF C44-9W's leading a westbound train.  This trestle spans a deep and narrow river gorge and is one of the better sites on Stevens pass.

Last but not least, a lone BNSF C44-9W is working as distributed power on the end of a long eastbound container train heading into the Cascade Tunnel.
