Burlington Northern 3140 leads two "pumpkins" on this westbound train. The lead engine is a GP50 and the 2nd two are SD40-2s. Union Pacific 9728 west detours on the BNSF Emporia subdivision in March 1999. UP 9728 is a Dash 8-40CW.

I am now at Paola,KS were the BNSF Fort
Scott subdivision crosses the UP Coffeyville sub.
There are alot of trains through here. BNSF is light these days but UP keeps on a comin'. Many coal trains has DPUs (remotely control locos) on both lines. This place is a good hangout spot. This is during summer 2000, I think. I lost track of dates with all these pics in a box and my memory is fuzzy.
