ABOUT THIS FEED:
The historic Harvey House Museum is the former Belen Harvey House of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway (AT&SF), predecessor of today's BNSF Railway.
You're looking at BNSF's Belen Yard, part of their Southern Transcon, the former Santa Fe mainline between Chicago and Los Angeles, and this is where the El Paso Sub from the east becomes the Clovis Sub to the west.
From this camera you'll see mainline freight headed in both directions, as well as the yard switcher.
In regards to the pushers (distributed power units, or DPU's) on westbounds, they are not fueled directly at the fuel pads, rather a fuel truck is driven back to the middle or (more commonly) the end of the train where the DPU's are located.
Actual track orientation here is north (west)-south (east). You'll also see carmen (inspecting trains) going back and forth on ATV's.
There is no Amtrak service here; their "Southwest Chief" bypasses Belen to the north as it heads to/from Albuquerque.
Even though there is an ATCS layout file available, there is no server coverage, so no data for the layout. No radio streams available.
There’s no schedule for freight trains, but some of our more knowledgeable members will provide real-time information when it’s available. Please refrain from asking.
