Remarks & Notes 
The construction continues on the Black Thunder West loadout facility as a train waits off in the distance and BNSF DPUs push East off the main at Reno Jct. The new Black Thunder West load out silos will be fed by a couple mile long conveyor that runs East to the mine. Hilight Rd. has also been relocated to make room for the silos and new tracks. Each of these two silos can hold two 150 car trains worth of coal, largest in the area.
