A telephoto shot of this westbound coal load amplifies the "roller coaster" feel of the tracks on the plains. There are miles and miles of ties along the right-of-way as BNSF is investing roughly $140 million in the Brush Sub in 2015. In addition to tie replacement, BNSF is extending the sidings of Bijou, Crest, Hudson, Messex, Roggen, and Tonville. They will also start on projects to extend Barr, Keensburg, New Hillrose, and Wiggins, although those projects won't be completed until 2016. It has also been suggested that BNSF plans to add a second main track to some (or even all) of the Brush Sub in the next few years to increase fluidity on the line.
