MRL SD70ACe's In The Business of Hauling BNSF Coal?

WB export coal through Helena in charge of  four ACes yesterday, so what's the story?

The 15:00 Mullan Helper gets out of the engine terminal.

But, instead of heading out to Helena Jct they head down into the yard.

The quarry is spotted. It't the back third of a coal train, the rest of which has already headed out to Helena West. Due to ballast work being done out at Helena Junction the usual helper insert couldn't be done there.

They head west past Foreman Sark's red board (I-15 bridge work) to join the rest of their train. This was all done in this manner to avoid tying up the Roberts St. and Montana Ave. grade crossings.
