The great competitors - eastbound intermodals from UP and BNSF.


UNION PACIFIC SD60M No. UP 4528 is partnered with former UP colleague No. LTEX 3905, now working for ‘rent a wreck’ leasing firm Larry’s Truck & Electric. The dynamic duo are illustrated pounding their eastbound double stack intermodal through Aurora, Illinois, on May 30th, 2006, not that many miles from their probable destination of Chicago.


Pictured just east of Flagstaff, Arizona, on April 21st, 2007, three Burlington Northern Santa Fe C44-9Ws and a Union Pacific ‘We Will Deliver’ branded SD9043AC thump along the ‘Transcon’ with a double stack intermodal service. The locomotives were BNSF 4403, BNSF 4863, UP 8045 and BNSF 4470.
