Just because I have no idea about the workings of a train; when you see a train with multiple engines like that, how many are actually powered up and running? All of them, just a couple? Inquiring and train ignorant minds wanna know.

Train left east out of Lincoln NE this afternoon on the Creston sub with 2 BNSF motors and 33 NREX motors in tow, followed up by two more BNSF motors.

BTW:The last SD40-2 delivered to a United States railroad was built in July 1984. (WIKI)

The BNSF units are the only ones running. Listen close, you can hear them.

Actually just watched the video. Notice how the lettering on the sides of the units is painted through with a black stripes? Tells me they are considered surplus, probably being pulled out of storage to go to auction.
