Remarks & Notes 
The NS/BNSF combination of power at the front this train illustrates the cooperation that exists between these two railroad's in order to get coal from the mines in Wyoming to a customer in central Georgia. The customer for this particular train is that of Georgia Power and their massive Plant Scherer facility located in Juliette, GA. Today the empty version of this train is heading west through Opelika on it's way back to the midwestern coal mines.
