If you're reading this page, you're probably a railfan. As
a fellow railfan, I endeavor to conduct my hobby in as safe a manner as
possible while trying to see and photograph trains whenever/wherever they are.
We all know the drill about not trespassing on railroad property, not
interfering with the business of running railroads, respecting private
property, etc. I encourage you to do the same so we and future railfans can
continue to enjoy our hobby. I am not affiliated with a railroad or official
entity in any way. I am simply a railfan who enjoys trains and this page exists
solely to share with other railfans what I have learned about the BNSF Phoenix
Sub, otherwise affectionately known as 'The Peavine.'
I don't claim to be an authority on this particular stretch of railroad. For
the past few years, I've been fortunate to live within earshot of the nearest
grade crossing, at Milepost 175, and as a result I've spent a lot of time
trackside. I spend most trackside time on the lower portion of the Peavine
between Surprise and Phoenix with the occasional trip north to some of the more
scenic locations, as well as the odd trip to the BNSF mainline.
I hope the information in this page benefits you while railfanning the BNSF
Arizona Peavine. Most of the hyperlinks embedded in the main text link to my
photographs taken along the Peavine; others link to related Peavine or Ennis Sub
pages I've created for this page. Many of the photographs are uploaded at RailPictures.net;
you can click
here to view all my photos at RailPictures.net. Besides those on
RailPictures.net, many more photos have been uploaded specifically for this
page; you'll also find some previously un-posted aerial photos I've taken.
