Remarks & Notes 
27,000 green horses
In the very early years of Burlington Northern Santa Fe, a loaded coal train claws up Crawford Hill at Windy Point (also known as Breezy Point) west of Belmont, Nebraska, on May 23, 1997. Up front is a five unit set of Cascade green GE C30-7s (3) and EMD SD40-2s (2), led by No. 5120. Pushing on the rear are four more SD40-2s along with a fuel tender, that can be seen on the lower part of the horse shoe curve. That’s 27,000 green horses to lift a coal train east over the hill!
