BNSF lead Empire Builder

BNSF Leading Empire builder Milwaukee to Chicago
Hey Eric, I got a phone call from an Amtrak Employee friend, Somewhere up in Minnesota/wisconsin the lead engine failed and they slapped a BNSF on. I was still in Navy and in my office, was able to get off base at the Naval station Great Lakes and shoot west to the CP Line and just made it by about 15 mins. before it went past me. Got it on Video also. thanks for comments!
not really... the Empire Builder has 3 locomotives pulling it alot more often than you might think... I've seen it with 3 P42 at the head alot of times
