Coal trains galore! What better way to spend the day than in the eastern part of Wyoming along the Powder River Basin! That's exactly what we did. After catching the now famous total solar eclipse in Casper, we made our base of operations in Douglas, Wyoming to catch the railroad action. This video was filmed over the course of about 8 hours on August 24, 2017 covering just the southern third of the Basin. So, without anymore boring information lets get too it. *Basic Disclaimers* All video was shot from PUBLIC PROPERTY (Federal, State & County Roads etc.) Video was taken SAFELY out of the way of MOVING TRAFFIC and in NO WAY impeded said traffic, either auto, truck or other vehicles using above mentioned roads. NO TRESPASSING occurred on property belonging to either BNSF Railway or Union Pacific Railway or any of their entities. This video is NOT a endorsement to trespass, harass or by any other means disrupt Rail traffic or MOW vehicles. Many portions were filmed using TELEPHOTO Lenses and are not as close to operating equipment as they APPEAR (meaning, we are NOT THAT CLOSE! so just chill).

Powder River Basin Coal Trains,    Heading back to the coal mines!
 
10:39
While heading back to Wisconsin from my Washington State Mountain Climbing Expedition. I stopped by numerous locations to watch the coal trains as I had done on previous trips. Traffic was basically dead South of Bill Wyoming. I decided to capture a scene on video of an old abandoned ranch out on the Wyoming Prairie near Keeline Wy. While doing so, I finally caught some railroading action. It turned out to be three empty coal hopper trains heading back to the Powder River Basin to load coal on the Union Pacific Railroad in & near Lusk Wy. So I had put these views in one video for all to view. Enjoy! Ken,.... https://www.up.com/index.htm http://www.townoflusk.org/ https://www.powderriverbasin.org/

King Coal - Powder River Rails & Mines
 
02:43
King Coal Powder River Rails & Mines In Wyoming's Powder River Basin, train after train of loaded and empty hoppers make their way across the desolate, rolling hills of the high plains. This is coal country. With production levels surpassing all other US mining areas, the numbers are staggering and that means rail traffic is at an all time high. To move these mountains of coal, the railroads rely on modern, high horsepower locomotives such as GE C44-9s and EMD SD90s to lug their heavy loads over the grades. Single track has been doubled and in some areas tripled to handle the massive volume. Rolling meets between Union Pacific and BNSF trains are common. Often several movements are visible at the same time, many with locomotives on both ends of the consist. There's even a helper district on the north end of the line. And all of these trains transport a single commodity—coal! Have you ever wanted to visit a strip mine to see how coal is dug, hauled from the pits, and flood-loaded into moving trains? At Black Thunder mine, close-up views show just how it's done. Massive mining machines and high-density railroading are required to move this vital commodity. It's all here: intense, big-time railroading action. Experience the complete story of King Coal - Powder River Rails & Mines!

Wyoming Coal Trains
 
05:31
The amount of coal transported by rail each year continues to grow. The Burlington Northern and the Chicago & North Western benefit greatly by hauling this coal out of the Powder River Basin of Wyoming. Watch as each railroad uses its own main line, and then work together on the joint line moving the coal out of the state. The Burlington Northern's 5th Sub from east of Gillette, southeast through Newcastle is the easternmost line. This section of railroad hosts much of the BN's coal traffic and also has plenty of general freight and priority trains as well. The Chicago and North Western operates over a section of its old "Cowboy Line" from Crandall to Shawnee toward the mines. On the Powder River Sub, the C&NW's Dash 9-44 and AC4400CW locomotives lead trains along with a sampling of Union Pacific power. Then the two railroads join together on the BN's 10th Sub, which is also the BN/CNW joint line. This corridor is the direct link to a majority of the Powder River Basin coal mines. Copyright 1995, C.

Coal Trains of the Powder River Basin
 
02:00
The Powder River Basin lies between Wyoming's Bighorn Mountains and the Black Hills of South Dakota. Thirteen active mines produce over 400 million tons of low-sulfur coal each year and it is up to the BNSF Railway and Union Pacific to transport it from the mines to customers throughout the United States and various ports for export. Over 100 miles of coal hoppers roll through the Powder River Basin each day. The majority of traffic can be found along the Orin Subdivision between Donkey Creek Junction and Shawnee Junction, making this the highest tonnage mainline in the world. This joint line serves several Powder River Basin mines including the Caballo, Belle Ayr, Cordero Rojo mines, Coal Creek, Black Thunder mines, North Antelope Rochelle and the Antelope mines. We begin at Donkey Creek Junction and follow the Orin Sub south to Shawnee Junction where joint trackage ends. Between those two points, a steady parade of long, heavy coal trains traverse the triple track main.

Burlington Northern Finale - Powder River Coal
 
03:59
Here's the promo for the second program of the Hal Pantti Series. In this 90 minute DVD, in the months right after the merger with the Santa Fe, Hal Pantti explored Burlington Northern's "Coal Country". Beginning at Lincoln, Nebraska, Hal traveled to Alliance. Then he followed a loop, traveling over the Angora, Valley, Canyon, Orin, Black Hills, Edgemont and Butte Subdivisions, finally arriving back in Alliance for the return trip home. In this program although the BNSF had just formed, you'll witness the final months of what still looked like true BN action in this region. As the Union Pacific shared the Orin Sub, you will see UP trains as well as UP power, which often pooled with BN power. Plenty of great locations! The short segments in this promo will give you a good idea of what you'll see & hear in the full retail DVD!

Water Runs Dry in Wyoming Coal Country
 
06:05
As coal mines grew and oil and gas wells came to the Power River Basin, LJ Turner lost not only his ranch's abundant water, but also 6,000 acres he once leased as grazing land. Now his cattle herd is half what it was, calves near the coal mines die at alarming rates, and he has had to spend thousands of dollars drilling deeper and deeper wells. Over the last 40 years, Turner and some of his neighbors have paid a heavy price for the development of energy resources. So have American taxpayers everywhere. The federal government owns most of the coal, oil and gas in the ground, and it has fostered mining and drilling through a host of subsidies that permit fossil fuel corporations to privatize the benefits while socializing many of the costs. Read the story, "How Federal Giveaways to Big Coal Leave Ranchers and Taxpayers Out in the Cold " by InsideClimate News: https://insideclimatenews.org/news/29122017/wyoming-powder-river-basin-coal-subsidies-climate-change-oil-gas-trump Part of Choke Hold, a series of stories by InsideClimate News that examines the fossil fuel industry's fight against climate policy, science and clean energy.

What Happened To Coal?
 
05:33
Wyoming's coal industry is in the midst of the largest transition since production took off in the late 1970s. Demand is falling and some of the largest coal companies in the country have filed for bankruptcy over the past year. According to the Mine Safety And Health Administration, Wyoming's Powder River Basin produced around 376 million tons of coal in 2015, down from nearly 20 million tons from the year before. These changes will have big impacts on jobs, revenue, a way of life. So, what happened to coal? How did the industry get to the point where companies are declaring bankruptcy and demand is in steady decline? These are polarizing questions with plenty of political finger pointing. Inside Energy's Leigh Paterson reports.

The power of the High Plains model, and the power here, is the human voice." NewWest.net "Heartbreaking and poignant." Steve Fesenmaier West Virginia Library Commission "POWDER RIVER COUNTRY tells the story of concerned citizens bravely challenging an industry on the development fast-track." Orion Magazine "All too often, short-term profits win out over long-term values. Such is the case in POWDER RIVER COUNTRY. This gripping documentary examines the devastating costs of coal bed methane production on otherwise unspoiled land and on the lives of unsuspecting, hard-working Americans." Timothy McGettigan, Ph.D., Department of Sociology, Colorado State University-Pueblo "The Powder River basin-some eleven million acres-until recently was a place to raise cows, horses, and families, mainly on small homesteads. Those who wanted to escape into its rolling hills, high plains, and big skies found solace in its isolation. But those days are gone. New technology that separates methane from deep-lying coal beds has brought scurrying fleets of large trucks and noisy generator installations to the basin. Probably the most disturbing aspect of this rush for a new source of natural gas is what it does to the region?s water table. Artesian wells that have supplied humans and livestock with warm but potable water for generations dry up almost overnight when water is pumped off the coal to release methane. Earth scientists offer predictions of ten to a hundred years for recovery of these wells-not pleasing to those ranchers and farmers who have signed rather loosely worded contracts with the mining companies. While one might suppose the water removed from coal beds would be usable, apparently it isn?t. High in salt and bicarbonates, the water, according to one of the interviewees in the film, may be used by humans and livestock but is deadly to plants, thereby eliminating irrigation as a viable outlet. The film examines several methods of disposing of the coal bed water, each of which may be problematic. Perhaps the most accurate summary of the whole issue is offered by a field rep of one of the gas companies: ?It?s a three-legged stool between the landowners, the regulatory agencies, and shareholders of the gas companies. The companies have invested lots of capital in leases, pilot wells, and production of commercial amounts of gas. The capital has to have a competitive rate of return to be attractive to shareholders.? POWDER RIVER COUNTRY succinctly examines the polarizing issues surrounding this new gas boom. Filmed in Montana near Decker and Colstrip, and in Wyoming near Sheridan, Buffalo, and Arvada." Montana Magazine "POWDER RIVER COUNTRY is excellently filmed, produced, and edited. The camera and sound work are combined masterfully in contrasting the disparate images the Basin in quiet solitude, with the Basin overrun with pumping sheds, waste water ponds, gas compressors, dirt roads, dust and truck traffic. POWDER RIVER COUNTRY is a powerful introduction to the real present and future costs of coal bed methane production." Educational Media Reviews On-Line
