An eastbound BNSF manifest train rounds a sharp curve four miles east of the Nolan Tunnels as it glides past goldenrods in bloom near Kyune, Utah on Union Pacific's ex-D&RGW main on September 19, 2019. This train is exercising BNSF trackage rights over this line granted by the FRA following UP's merger with SP in 1996. Leading the 100+ car train is General Electric ES44C4 No. 8370, delivered to BNSF in January 2015.
