BNSF's Staples sub part 3 with a CP bonus

On July 7 we had our last filming day in Detroit Lakes and along The Staples sub. The first train we caught was a southbound CP train near Callaway,we first spotted it in our car along highway 59 and I took a grab shot

Then we set up on county road 260 to shoot it,it was going a bit fast so I didn't have enough time and had to set up quickly, heres the shot

I also saw a BNSF high rail truck

Then we headed to Verndale waited awhile then decided to head back. But just as we got to Wadena an eastbound showed up we chased it back to Verndale and was able to shoot it,

The sot turned out good with the Verdale sign.

After that a westbound intermodal went through

Then an eastbound coal train came through,probably bound for The Becker Power Plant in Becker Minnesota,

It also had a DPU unit on the tail end

Then the next train caught me by surprise,a westbound tank train,

One thing interesting about these long tank trains is that they each have one hopper car at the front behind the loco's and at the back, I think thats to protect the dangerous cargo.
