Geep, SD40-2, and Four Dash 8s on BNSF Mixed Freight
Author: Agent

Last month, I caught an eastbound BNSF mixed freight train with eight locomotives as it passed by Agency, Iowa.  The train looked like a DMOGAL on its was from Des Moines, Iowa to Galesburg, Illinois.  There were a couple typical GEs leading the train.  Then there was a BNSF Geep and SD40-2.  The second half of locomotives was a quartet of Dash 8s.  These four had just come out of the RELCO shop at Albia.  They've been painted in Genesee & Wyoming paint but with no railroad name or logos on the long hoods.

For fans of fallen flag rolling stock, there's an ex-Illinois Central Gulf and an ex-Soo Line covered hoppers coupled to each other at 2:09 and a Conrail autorack near the end of the train.

List of engines:
BNSF 4151 C44-9W
BNSF 6870 ES44C4
BNSF 2723 GP39-2
BNSF 1718 SD40-2
GECX 537 B32-8
GECX 546 B32-8
GECX 556 B32-8
GECX 566 B32-8

Thanks for posting. Gotta love a manifest. Seems like I see fewer trains on the Des Moines branch these days yet the ones I do see are bigger.
