Sorry for the low resolution but I see this train often on Virtual Railfan, consisting of a Dash 9 or a Gevo, a brown closed hopper, and a Budd passenger car. Does anyone know what this train is used for? (Could it be a mixed train perhaps? :wink: )

I saw it some months ago in Galesburg IL. It’s a fully automated track measurement car. No humans aboard unless there is a maintenance issue.
BNSF bought the car from someone else. It’s not even their own heritage fleet.
