The shoulder ballast cleaner that I work on arrived on the Hastings Sub today to work about 30 miles of track; here are a few pics I took along the way.

What railroad is running west from there towards Sterling Colorado?
I think Tom is asking if there are locals that run on the BNSF from Holdrege.?

There is a local that runs out of Hastings; I don't know how far west it goes.

I saw it a couple days ago with a GP30 (still in BN paint) and what looked like a GP35 rebuild. I'll try to get a pic of it.

On 8/28 the dispatcher put a loaded unit train of wind turbine blades in the siding at Kenesaw, NE to allow a westbound Z train to pass; those blades are huge!
