In the midst of the many challenges people have faced in the past several months, it’s good to know that some things never change. BNSF trains keep moving freight, and railfans keep capturing magnificent images of them, even in cold winter weather. We’ve scoured the entries from this year’s Winter Photo Contest to find the 10 most un-brrr-lievable scenes!

First Place Winner: Tom Danneman: “Northwest Montana’s Cabinet Mountain Range and a BNSF empty coal train reflect in the calm, cold waters of Trout Creek just west of Trout Creek, Mont., on January 27, 2020.”

The annual contest is hosted on BNSF Railway’s official Instagram and Twitter channels as well as our Friends of BNSF Facebook group.

Photographers should always remember that train photos must be taken safely, on public property. Keep a safe distance from railroad tracks, which are on private property. Trespassing on the tracks or right-of-way is illegal and dangerous.
