Remarks & Notes 
BNSF operated their track measurement train from Denver to La Junta, CO. BNSF SD40-2 6399 (ex-Burlington Northern 6327 renumbered in July 1998) and 6901 led the crew support car 81 (lettered Track Geometry Car #1) and track measurement car BNSF 81 RIO GRANDE RIVER. It was purchased by the Southern Pacific as a double deck coach SP #3700. Transcisco Tours purchased the car in 1992 renaming it SACRAMENTO. Burlington Northern became the owner in 1994 renaming it RIO GRANDE RIVER. In June 1998, BNSF renumbered the car to BNA #39, and then further renumbered the car to BNSF 43. The RIO GRANDE RIVER was converted to a track geometry car around 2004 becoming BNSF 80.
