BNSF 6829 East flies over a coalie on the Argentine Connection.



Simply awesome !!!
Thanks!
storyThe JB Hunt stack train is coming out of BNSF Argentine Yard, heading for Chicago. The coalie is a southbound RWSX Alabama Power train, also on BNSF rails, which cross at grade with KCT at what was originally known as Frisco Crossing Interlocking. The middle level is the KCT High Line which is primarily used now by Union Pacific to send trains east to St. Louis on their own rails or to Chicago on the BNSF Transcon, utilizing old trackage rights granted to the SSW Cotton Belt from KC to Chicago at the time of the BNSF merger in 1995. SP/SSW was itself swallowed up by UP in 1996, so UP now has the trackage rights.
