Remarks & Notes 
An interesting power lashup, for sure! Let’s begin with the lead engine, BNSF 5726. The General Electric builder’s sticker lists this as an AC4400CW (which is also the marking BNSF applied to the sill), but GE calls them AC4400CWT2 locomotives. BNSF, however, calls them AC4400EV locomotives, although in the railway’s computer they are shown as AC44EVs, presumably because the computer has a limit on the number of characters allowed. The second locomotive is BNSF ES44AC 6040. Nothing unusual here. But the next three engines! EMDX SD70ACe-T4s 7242, 7236 and 7240 are of interest! These shiny black 4500 horsepower diesels are lettered for Progress Rail (A Caterpillar Company), but carry an EMDX reporting mark. The model designation applied to the cabs is SD70ACe-T4 but, again, that is too much for BNSF’s computer system, which called them SD70Ms. While these are in Progress Rail’s lease fleet, they are leased to Kansas City Southern and are only on the BNSF to repay horsepower hours that KCS owes BNSF. This train is BNSF Z-LPKLAC9-03L, a Priority UPS-LTL Intermodal train that originated at Logistics Park in Kansas City KS and is heading to Los Angeles CA with 73 cars (all loads), weight 5.699 tons and is 6,906-feet in length. And, yes, there will be a test later… (Placentia, California – March 5, 2021)
