This picture is looking east off of the 42st Street Bridge. The bridge itself is still under construction, however is completed to the middle of Argentine Yard, where an off-ramp has been constructed to allow BNSF employees to enter and exit.
We're now on the south part of the yard, close to the north and south main tracks, right off Goddard Avenue. One of the westbound stack trains, led by an SD75M, is making its way through the yard, no doubt in a big hurry to continue its trek westward.
Here's another view looking east off the 42st Street Bridge. This gives a better view of the torn-up tracks, and how the overall terrain is changing. In the distance, an intermodal train is parked by the fueling racks. Once serviced, and inspected, it will rocket off to 70 mph running on the Emporia Sub.
Here's another view looking west off the 42st Street Bridge, and down the BNSF ramp. This gives a better view of the new bowl tracks (40-52) that will be built. Off to the right, is the Terminal Tower.
