BNSF 6345 leads an eastbound coal empty at Dalies, NM on January 2, 2010.

BNSF ES44AC's 6345, 6185 and 6421 along with C44-9W 4071 are heading east with an empty coal train, most likely from the Springerville, AZ TEPCO power plant. The train is approaching the Dalies, NM junction on its way back to the North Antelope Coal mine (NACCO) in the Wyoming Powder River basin on January 2, 2010. As most coal trains in this area operate west of Gallup, the big AC units aren't often seen here.This train operates with 4 units on the front and two distributed power units on the rear.
