Big plans for his railroad, according to Uncle Warren's spokesperson (non-sexist acknowledgement) who may, or may not be a man, but could be a woman, or a you know... Not that that's a bad thing ya know.

Uncle Warren has more plans for his outfit based on money that may be coming in. A big maybe...

Seems like counting your chickens before the eggs hatch, methinks. Then again maybe Uncle Warren can see into the future

I think a great use of BNSF dollars would be to get Stampede Tunnel heightened to run double stacks through it.
Seems with todays technology/tunnel boring that it can be done much faster today. The coastline mainline between
Seattle and Everett is at the mercy of future tsunami's and permanent damage. If not tsunami's...mudslides.
Mudslides all the time. Just waiting for "Oso sized" one to come down along the tracks...one that takes a lot of time
to clear.

Forget double stackers through Stampede! The latest 'trend' if you will, is drones. Yep drones. Uncle Warren wants more, better drones that'll replace a few more human inspectors, and save money in the bargain.

Always a supporter of the latest in railroad technology, and improving efficiency, and his outfit's bottom line...

...and about your 2019 productivity bonus... Not this year. Nope. 2LARRCO will 'redirect' those monies towards this latest new technology. Drones. Yep!

 Helluva thing to get gang-raped in prison for. They'll have 4k video of you doing it to give your family something to talk about. Of course, shooting a flying pack of cigarettes at a couple of hundred feet may get you an Annie Oakley Award before the gang rapes.
