A BN coal train eases into Alliance, NE after a trip over Crawford Hill. One of BN's three leased SD60s, featuring the tiger stripe scheme, leads the all EMD consist. Note the fuel tender on board as well. The leasing of the three units led to the leasing of 100 Oakway blue and white SD60s. The 8301 later went to Soo Line. The next actual purchase of a new locomotive by BN would be SD60Ms in the white face scheme, followed by SD70MACs.
