Due to bandwidth constraints, only members of our affordably priced RVElite subscription service may view ultra high quality videos.
Ultra high quality videos are encoded at a higher video resolution (640x480, the size of this light gray box), are sampled at bitrates of 4000+k/sec, have no compression added, and may be viewed by our valued RVElite members in full-screen mode.
Remarks: The locomotives on this coal train are BNSF 8214 (EMD SD75M), BN 9200 (EMD SD60M, and an Electromotive Division 9096 EMD SD60. At the beginning of the video an MRL SD70ACe runs adjacent to the coal train as it builds a consist in the Helena yard.
I forgot to add that the fourth locomotive is MRL 331, an SD45-2. This train will run out to Fort Harrison where it will cut in four MRL helpers to assist in the push over Mullan Pass and the Continental Divide ahead. Note the interesting variety of logos on the BNSF Trinity RD-4 coal hoppers.

Nice lashup all together! I like the triclops second unit. I must say though, the SD75s look better in warbonnet scheme than the H2.

How long was the train being lead by the MLR unit? It seemed to squat pretty quick.
