An even dozen BNSF pull pass the Joliet depot

My first up load to Railroadforums
I would say BNSF power move for fueling. I think they fill 'em up at Corwith MP 5.9 for Willow Springs (UPS) MP 17.0 and Logistics Park MP 48.2 (about 10 miles south of Joliet). Have seen 9-12 units on the front of trains, with only a handful of cars, or running light.

Nice catch, makes for an interesting picture, the BNSF power parade.
I'm new at this so I don't know how many units it takes to pull what, I was with two other ran fans and I do know it was a stack train about a mile to a mile and 1/2 long, It took a long time for it to clear the depot. They did tell me that it was around 50,000 ponies.
