https://flic.kr/p/NnwhXh | Fresh MAC | A Burlington Northern Santa Fe coal train recently loaded in Powder River Basin is in scenic Wendover Canyon east of Cassa, Wyoming, on July 9, 1999. A fairly new EMD SD70MAC in fresh “Heritage II” paint leads the eastbound train along the North Platte River.
Back in 2009 the BNSF was taking delivery of new 6300's series units. Here a westbound coal train has 11 units, 7 of them brand new units probably heading to Alliance for setup. The train passes the colorful wildflowers that grown in August thru out the Nebraska Sandhills. This train came out of Eola, IL, off the EJ&E, and is bound for Decker Mine, MT, for loading.
