Remarks & Notes 
After making a crew change 170th St. in Cameron, IL BNSF C-ALNMEK1-19 (Alliance,NE-Memphis,TN/NS) get the diverging approach signal to proceed off the BNSF Ottumwa Sub (MP-164.64) and onto the Galesburg Yard lead heading straight for the BNSF Brookfield Sub for St. Louis, MO. A strong westernly gust of wind blows east on this cool June afternoon, covering the foreground with exhaust fumes. This is a Tennessee Valley Authority contract coal bucket that got the 120 loads from the Arch Coal Inc, Black Thunder Mine deep in the Powder River Basin, and is heading east for Norfolk Southern in Memphis, TN. Eventually the train will be handed down to Norfolk Southern, and on a critical schedule will run to the TVA Kingsport Fossil Fuel Plant in East Tennessee, and will make the return trip back to Memphis for the BNSF Railway.
