Remarks & Notes 
Yes, this is actually a train, a work train, and it was running a good 30 mph on the main track of a main line, trailing its 6 freight cars. I don’t know what railroad it belongs to. If I judge by the markings on the cars – mostly ATSF and BN -, and by the location (a BNSF line), it should be the BNSF. But the locomotive – or should I say the truck? – says “Brandt”. So perhaps is it the newest railroad company in the west: the Brandt Railroad? Now as regards the maker of the locomotive, this is not a known product of EMD or GE, or any other locomotive maker. Anybody can help? And for the type of locomotive, I hesitate between a GP and a SD. There are 6 axles, 1 of which is not in contact with the rails, 4 have tires, 2 are train wheels. So let’s call it a GD for General Duty, and RPN should perhaps create a new category.
