BNSF2009090030 - BNSF, Montrose, IA, 9/2009
I called the events surrounding this scene the "cluster" at Montrose. 9141, handling a coal train south, was over three hours here meeting 4 trains. The conductor, who lined the switch from the siding back to the main, told me that he had gotten on in Burlington (30 miles to the north) and was already tired out. Leading the train is SD70ACe 9141 + ES44AC 6091. Montrose, IA, 9/2/2009, 4:30 PM, MP 189.3.
