A local farmer in the small town of Nunn has erected a huge flag pole in his or her field. That flag offers a great backdrop as UP 844 charges north toward the US-85 overpass. Some people may wonder why a diesel engine is on the train. As powerful and amazing as UP 844 is, it alone does not have the power to keep the train moving at track speed. In order to keep the schedule, a diesel engine is added and throttles up (when needed) to assist UP 844.
