Remarks & Notes 
BNSF’s westbound manifest freight that operates on the Union Pacific’s Moffat Tunnel Subdivision is westbound on the approach to Tunnel 1 east of Plainview, Colorado, on April 5, 1999. Leading the colorful consist is Burlington Northern 1991, a specially-painted red, white and blue “Pulling for Freedom” EMD SD60M decked out to honor our troops in Desert Storm. By 1999 when this photo was made, the paint was getting a bit tattered, and the locomotive was repainted and renumbered into BNSF “Heritage II” No. 9299 less than a year later. Trailing is a former Santa Fe GE U36C, rebuilt into a SF30C and was part of the LRC (Livingston Rebuild Center) lease fleet that saw use on BNSF. The last two locomotives are EMD SD40-2s in BNSF and BN liveries.
