Highlight for October - November 2016
BNSF (originally ATSF) C44-9W 626 passes southbound through Manley, MN on Ocrober 28, 2016. It is still in its aging original SantaFe warbonnet livery that it received when it was built in February 1994. Its current assignment on the Sioux City - Garretson local reflects its age. Until recently this local was powered by 4 axle units, but now uses six axle power. It is interesting that the second unit of this power consist is the BNSF 3903, one of the newer Tier 4 ET44C4 units.
