In a rare occurrence, the MP Heritage Locomotive ended up on a UP coal train bound for the Entergy Power Plant at Independence, AR on the Missouri & Northern Arkansas, and the empty train is seen traversing the Ex-MP Carthage Sub., now the MNA Nevada Sub. on the way back to the UP as MNA Train CNWRO 26 led by the UP 1982.
This is the first time UP 1982 has touched these former Mo-Pac Rails, and will likely be the only time. The 1982 was added last weekend in Parsons, KS when the train was headed south loaded after the UP 6713 sprung a bad fuel leak and was bad ordered. Here we pace the train up Old US Highway 71. That's Engineer Dale Pryor hanging out the window and Conductor Mike Hickman could be heard laughing it up on the radio.
