BNSF Railway Track Measurement Train Galesburg Illinois

Riding Amtrak California Zephyr #5 to Burlington Iowa – I hopped off in Galesburg Illinois to record Railroad Museum. But my eye caught a glimpse of what looked like private varnish ( privately owned passenger rail car ). I quickly headed in direction of what I found out was BNSF Track Measurement Train passing through region.

Getting a bit of fresh air is allowed in Galesburg most days during stop. But you should always stay trackside and listen for re-boarding announcement. Train will leave without you if you wander off.
