    I actually couldn't see on my smartphone screen that it was empty, so you probably don't need a buffer on empty rail trains. They may just leave it, though, for simplicity

    When we received the rail cars on the VRS, we did have a spacer(buffer) for the loaded cars. Typically an empty ballast car or gondola that is ours.
    Empties they will be sent back, typically with regular freight.

    A pair of CMQ painted SD40-2F's lead a loaded ballast train on the D&H Canadian Mainline. (I missed the section with more scenery when I snapped this, whoops!)

    KERC SD40-2 #7009, with KERC GP38-2 #3802, WMRC GP38-2 #238, and KERC GP11 #8733 struggle up the 1% grade out of Windsor Jct, pulling nearly 7000 tons of ballast. Last minute ballast dumping to take place just before the first snow fall.

    SP GP40-2's pulling some stacks, and CN ES44's pulling mixed freight.

    WMRC became the operator of the old Springfield Terminal line in Vermont, serving four customers, Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays.

    The last shot, which I'm assuming is Sandpoint, ID. - great shot! What's the story with that route??

    You assumed correct; it is Sandpoint. That route in particular is Whitefish10, which you can find in the file library.
