Remarks & Notes 
Beneath the Kansas City skyline, a deuce of ex-Burlington Northern EMDs crawl toward Olive St up the North Main with a lengthy T KCS1 10R on the drawbars. This is a transfer job that moves tonnage from BNSF's Argentine Yard across the border to Kansas City Southern's Knoche Yard and return. Aside from a couple small engine modifications, today's train looks like something straight out of the 90s with this classic green & white SD40-2/SD60M combo. The lead locomotive, BNSF 1792, and trailer, BNSF 1455, were built back in March 1978 and February 1991, respectively; Once the pride of Burlington Northern's mainline fleet, these two now live out their final years of service held captive in the greater Kansas City area on trains just like these. This crew would expire on hours upon arrival at Knoche and wouldn't make the return trip back toward the BNSF until early the next morning.
