Eastbound BNSF Stack Train Passing Bazar, KS Station Sign

ATSF 7447 (B40-8) assisted by what appears to be a BNSF 'fakebonnet' C44-9W leads an eastbound BNSF stack train with lots of J B Hunt containers apparent past the old Santa Fe station sign at Bazar, KS. 'Bazar' is a Santa Fe only spelling of this town; the US Geological Survey shows it as Bazaar, KS. The 'town' does not have a post office.
Bazar is the 2nd station west of Ellinor, KS on the former ATSF freight cutoff via Amarillo, TX and Belen, NM. The cutoff leaves the original mainline via La Junta, CO and Albuquerque, NM at Ellinor, KS and rejoins at Dalies, NM. Amtrak still uses that original main line, but the bulk of BNSF thru freights use this freight cutoff and avoid Raton Pass.
