From Alliance, Nebraska, BNSF`s Sand Hills Subdivision moves high volumes of Powder River Basin coal to the east and other regions. In this program, you`ll see trains from a variety of locations, mainly on the Western (and more scenic) portion of the line. Then on the Butte Subdivision, heavy, loud & intense would be the best way to describe the trains, as they climb for 14 miles out of Crawford and are challenged by the pine ridge escarpment and the double horseshoe of Crawford hill. Trains that often exceed 15.000 tons face a grade of 1.55 percent, and manned helpers are required. Videographer Dan Millet recorded the drama in full high definition video from earth shaking ground level shots to beautiful panoramic overlooks!
