Union Pacific eastbound
approaching Lawrence, Kansas

Santa Fe locomotive crossing bridge

A red and silver Santa Fe locomotive combines with those of Union Pacific and Chicago Northwestern on this coal train entering Lawrence, Kansas. Often railroads borrow locomotives from each other as they experience traffic surges. To repay their debt, the borrowing railroad will then lend its locomotives to the provider for an equal number of horsepower-hours.
