Is the for-shortening tricking me or is there, in fact, not a diesel "helper"?

Yep. Look for the second numberboard behind the steam engine.
I also noted someone leaning out of the fireman's side.
But the biggest surprise (for me) was the load. I didn't realize they were using 4014 for freight.

This is both a once-in-a-lifetime meet and an "A+" photo.

A rarely found meet indeed. In my many years as an engineer on the 4th district I can only think of once that I encountered a BN/BNSF train passing over the busy UP mainline at Sidney. Congrats to you for this special photo.

Those would be the 21 empty covered hoppers that they took from Cheyenne to North Platte, on the eastbound move.

Wow! Those other photographers closer to the bridge are probably muttering under there breath “a few seconds earlier!”

It's there and likely doing most of the work...
(And I'll keep believing that until UP puts 4014 on a stack train ALONE - like the better steamer 3985 did with the APL stack train)

Now I see it, it was the foreshortening. Thank you! Man, that is foreshortened. My compliments to the OP.

I'd be foaming at the mouth if I got this shot, great job. Love the freight being pulled by 4014, really adds to the photo, in addition to a meet.
