Completely gone since sometime in 2008. BNSF freights now only run as far as La Junta on the old transcon passenger mainline.

From a story in last Sunday's Albquerque Journal, Sometime during the year,the first firing up of 2926's boiler since 1953 will happen with a
possible run to Las Vegas NM to follow later on. http:/ http://www.abqjournal.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

2926 has been rerailed with help from Hutcher,work is in progress to rebuild the pit and the steel holding the rail in the pit space.
A surprise leak in the oil bunker(Tender) has been repaired and shortly the loco and Tender will be joined together again soon.
(they were split apart due to the derailment of the trailing truck)
