UP power on work train  Contributor's Pick!       
NS was not shy about borrowing other roads power for even mundane assignments. A pair of BNSF units ran on a local for several months in the Tier, and there were times when a pair of UP units did the same. Here we see one on a stone train. Its a long way from stack trains in Nebraska!! Of note is the C 420 on the adjacent track in the NYSW yard, along with what looks like an F unit. NYSW handled a lot of units for other short lines and regionals, and a lot of interesting power showed up from time to time.
