BNSF 3892 East leads a monster container train of 200 wells.



This train has four units up front, three more about 2/3rds of the way back, plus two more at the rear end. Nominal length would be about 10,000 feet or so. I've not seen this done on BNSF frequently, so it may indicate a recently-changed operating practice, or may be due to a shortage of crews and thus a combination of two trains that would have been run separately in normal circumstances. Nice to have a couple of Tier-4 GE units leading, too.
