Paul, I think the telephoto makes the track look worse than in actually is! It is welded rail and trains safely run through this section at 30 MPH. The maximum speed anywhere on the line is 49 MPH.

I have great respect and admiration for BNSF - they and UP put on good shows (of railroading at it's best)everywhere west of Chicago! However, even allowing for it being a hot August day near the Front Range (another location I have to re-visit!) I cannot believe that that track is befitting of such a Class 1 railroad! Tell me it ain't so!!
