Union Pacific U30C 2924 leads its train through North Platte, NE early on a March 1980 day. It doesn't seem like 37 years ago that this picture was maed. The other two locomotives in the consist are both SD40-2's" CNW 6929 and Conrail 6468. At that time, run through power from other roads was common.
