The Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey circus train passed through town yesterday. It was handed off from the Union Pacific to the BNSF at North Yard in the late evening.
Two UP SD70Ms led the train into BNSF North Yard:

BNSF SD45-2 6465 and Genset BNSF 1234 were working the north end of the yard:
With the sunlight rapidly disappearing, new BNSF EMD and GE power sits side-by-side at McElroy in Saginaw. BNSF SD70ACe 9134 leads a coal train while BNSF ES44DC 7395 spots a grain train to the elevator:
An impressive train, even with no scenery and very little light, the Circus train finally departs North Yard. This is BNSF train symbol U-FTWMLN1-25A beginning its journey from Fort Worth, TX to Moline, IL:
