BNSF 5840 heads west through Colona, IL heading for Silvis to drop off these 35 SD40-2 units. This was amazing to see. They just kept coming and coming! Ha.

      that might actually be a funeral train those are SD40T-2's there ether going to a short line railroad because of how "union pacific" is crossed out


      or they're being scrapped/going into storage because those are OLDER locomotives and that does happen a lot


      or there being converted

      Considering how heavy each of these units is, I wonder how many were actually under power during this move. I tried looking for exhaust soot but that did not work.

      The hostage negotiation for the release of Union Pacfic power has reached day eight and the engineers of these machines can only ask why?
      "Its been eight days man I'm pulling 7900 tons with a single unit and the dispatcher keeps asking me why I'm going under 20 mph this whole trip. We need our power back!"
