New BNSF Fort Worth - PNW Intermodal Train Hits the MRL

Note that in the carefully worded press release, there is no mention whatsoever of the MRL.

New BNSF intermodal service train at Austin, Montana on Friday, September 16.
As the service started on Sept. 12 (see link above,) this may be the first WB train.

Meeting an EB coal empty at East Austin. The coal train sat for an hour, and could have easily made the double track at Tobin in that time, so obviously MRL dispatch wasn't taking any chances.

All J.B. Hunt, it will be interesting to see what other traffic develops on this train.
