BNSF Railway double stack train symbol SKCKSCO
meets the MELPAMA in Abo Canyon

BNSF Railway double stack train symbol SKCKSCO slows to meet the MELPAMA in Abo Canyon

East of the crossover at Abo, the SKCKSCO (Kansas City to southern California on-dock facility stack train) eases down the hill from Mountainair on October 26, 2006. Looks like the campfire they started on engine 4709 to toast marshmallows got a little out of hand. There is a M/W crew working ahead and the line is down to a single track between Abo and Keyser. The train will stop and wait for the MELPAMA to clear the crossover.

The SKCKSCO had engines 4790 and 4924 (I missed the DPU power) and the MELPAMA had engines 5044 and NS 8389.
