Fuel tender
Title:  Fuel tender
Description:  BN, and subsequently, BNSF, have tried fuel tenders at various times. BNs effort in the 80s was to extend the distances between fueling stops, and modified several tanks so they could fuel while en route. One of the tender sets is pulling this 66 car eastbound through Hoffman Av as it starts down the river toward La Crosse. As an added bonus, the leader is one of the BN tiger stripe units. The power is otherwise notable in that the two GP 50's and cabless B30-7A represent common road power in the era before 6 axle units took over everything.

Warbonnets west
Title:  Warbonnets west
Description:  A pair of warbonnets leads a BN unit and an old scheme Santa Fe unit west. The merger was only a few months old at this point, and the power had largely not mixed yet, so the BN unit was unusual.
