View Full Version : Bnsf 8908

First off: I am horrible at statistics. Yet the odds on this are what fascinate me.

In the database, there are only two photos of BNSF 8908. Hmm, no big deal, there are alot of SD70MACs that aren't in the database, so two is pretty good.

Both photos of BNSF 8908 were taken by me. Hmm, that's peculiar.

Both photos of BNSF 8908 were taken in the same spot. Hmm, this is getting interesting...

The two photos of BNSF 8908 were taken over 1 year apart. Now it's getting freaky especially since I don't live in Colorado!

So that's the fascinating part to me: what are the chances of seeing the same unit on the point, at the same spot, one year later? You could say 50/50 since it's either gonna be there or not, but how many possible combinations of lashups could BNSF 8908 have been in when it rolled by this past week? It's mindblowing to think about!

Here are the photos:


Just wanted to share!

That's pretty neat. I don't think I have ever done anything like that. I guess since they are employed in coal service, you had something on your side, but still, that is some coincidence.
