A long line of freight to get into Canada
This video was uploaded from an Android phone.
BNSF 7625 & 8159 and their mixed freight train are west bound and I video taped them at three locations starting at west of Eldridge, ND. The video shows the locations. There was a large amount of Loram equipment sitting in Cleveland, ND so i can only assume restrictions on speed and that is why the first two videos the train is running slow. This could be a Dilworth, MN to Glendive, MT local, not sure.
A CP Rail Manifest Freight with a AC4400CW and a SD40-2 cross the Sheyenne National Grasslands in Southern North Dakota. This is the former Soo Line at MP 241, Orchid siding, on the Elbow Lake Subdivision. The train is Eastbound going from Enderlin North Dakota to Glenwood Minnesota and is typical of a CP manifest, with empty sand cars up front (North Dakota Oil Fracking), loaded Grain, emptys, and a nice cut of Tank Cars at the end carrying North Dakota crude. Train is on track with maximum speed of 49 mph at the east end of Orchid siding as it crosses North Dakota Highway 27. August 25, 2013.
The videos were taken over several days. The first few are while sitting next to the tracks in Ross, North Dakota. The next day was spent in Minot at several locations. All but the last video were shot from the pedestrian walking bridges over the BNSF while the last one is west of the CP yard in Minot. The CP train was the transfer train where CP takes cars from their yard and delivers them to BNSF Gavin yard. There they pick up any cars for transfer to CP. The caboose is used to protect reverse movements thru the city.
NORTH DAKOTA FREIGHT TRAIN
In June of 2011 I worked as a traveling nurse in Williston, North Dakota. This left me with some railfan time on my hands so spent time beside the tracks in Williston; Bainsville, Montana; Culbertson, Montama; and then back to Williston watching a lot of BNSF grain trains among others.
This is a long video but has lots of train action. We start out with the Amtrak Empire Builder arriving westbound at the old GN Depot in Minot, North Dakota. As you listen to the chatter you will find that Amtrak wants to cut out the rear unit of three and leave in Minot. But Amtrak does not have the units in the correct order which causes lots of confusion in which one to set out. Next you will see a short eastbound BN intermodal train go by as it crosses the SOO Tower diamond. Finally the Amtrak train is backed up to go thru the process of removing the rear unit and leave on a siding east of the depot. While this process is going on the SOO transfer train has arrived in front of the new BN crew change building and is waiting to cross over the SOO diamond and then back to the southe...

Wagons from a mile-long train carrying crude oil have burst into flames as they derailed after a collision in the US state of North Dakota. A plume of thick black smoke could be seen many miles away and explosions were heard. No injuries were reported, but officials ordered the evacuation of about 300 people from the nearby town of Casselton as a precaution. Amateur footage caught some of the explosions.
A early morning way freight in the 3- weather going north.
DMVW 5418 and 5454 have just left the Falkirk Jct and are headed for Max. They have 25 cars from an elevator in Wilton, 4 hoppers and 14 tank cars from the ethanol plant. The second part of the video is the crew picking up 23 2 bay hoppers in Underwood. The sun is about to set and the only chance to video is from the wrong side due to large amounts of snow everywhere.
