Description:  BNSF 4560 and CP 8851 confusing the heck out of me - Id thought they were the headend, but soon disappeared south (right of frame) as pushers or one heckuva long back-up maneuver to get back onto the mains (near tracks in frame, hes on number four, the old passing lane; the new extra-long passing lane closest in frame. Now you too can be as confused as I.)
