York, NE '98
Author: 3rdswitch

A little variety from a short visit to York, NE located on BNSF’s very busy coal line from Alliance to Lincoln, NE in 8-98.
top: BN SD60M 9205 leads coal loads east through York.
middle: brand new BNSF SD70MAC 9879 leads another loaded coal train east through York.
bottom: a coal empty led by Oakway SD60 9030 headed west.

Great shots JB. I remember the first time I went to York back in 83. I was amazed that the REA sign was still on the depot door.
I didn't shoot any trains in York as we were headed for Grand Island and the UP/BN Diamond.

Thanks for posting those.

Very nice shots.

I visited the York area a couple of years earlier when the 70MAC's were just being
delivered. I can see that the friend that was with me and I missed some good spots.
However, just east of York, there is a huge "S" curve that we did quite well on.
We were chasing a couple of loads east at the time, which was possible in those
days.

The former Burlington line between Lincoln and Alliance is one of those "must" visit
places, even with today's wide-nosed GE's and EMDs.
