NEW FACILITIES FOR INCREASED TRAFFIC AT ALLIANCE

As part of Burlington Northern's preparation for increased coal traffic in unit trains from Montana and Wyoming, a $46 million car and locomotive facility has been installed at Alliance, NE. In addition to describing this facility for repairing 1000 cars and maintaining 60 locomotives daily, this article also discusses the "fast track" basis for designing and constructing this shop to assure it would be in place as BN train movements increased.
