    BNSF Train symbols for Powder River Div. Alliance

    Does ANYONE know the symbols for the few mixed manifest trains that run over the Powder River Division of the BNSF, out of Alliance, Nebraska? I cannot seem to find the various symbols of the regular freights seen over Crawford Hill each day. My email can be used as well. Thanks, Will...
