Title:  MRL/BNSF C-EBMSPB0-26A assaults Winston Hill with the 840 Local following
Description:  Believe it or not, but the head-ends of two trains can be seen in this shot. Obviously the ExecuMacs of the coal train, but, if you look off to the left of the 9800's plow, you can see a dark mass. On examination of the full image on my computer, you can clearly see the headlights and front of the MRL 252!
