An eastbound BNSF manifest train emerges from the Nolan Tunnels near Kyune, Utah on Union Pacific's ex-D&RGW main on September 30, 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 EMD SD70ACe No. 8545, delivered in June 2014.
