BNSF 5000 and 8996 led a two car westbound passenger special through the Lincoln area Tuesday night. One car was Rio Grande. They were track inspection or geometry cars, apparently.

You are correct.  This is one of two BNSF track geometry trains.

Nick;

This whizzed by 1030pm. The Rio Grande was an ex SP commuter bi-level apparently. The other car looked to be ATSF. TIM
