While checking the BNSF yard at Monett, MO I found this unusual trio. I'm not sure why the NS unit was sitting in the yard. BNSF has a tie gang working in the area, and I believe the BN caboose is being used on tie and ballast work trains. While taking photos of this unusual pair I noticed a hopper on the next track that still carries reporting marks for the CB&Q. I thought it was an interesting trio, and that others might enjoy seeing it.

I ♥ you too!

P.S. Kermit, good catches there. :)
