It’s just a “wedge” photo in the Sand Hills of Nebraska, but the Cascade green on this westbound Burlington Northern coal train sure looks nice on the early spring day of May 11, 1995. BN EMD SD40-2 No. 7925 leads a pair of GE C30-7s in BN and Santa Fe flavors on this coal empty west of Antioch.
The EMD SD (special duty) series are a strong and reliable kind of locomotive which still serve America's rails today. They have proved themselves by clocking in several million miles of freight service.
