2233(07) had a new liveried St Louis coach coupled behind the MP36 power. The patterns don't match up. Looks really bad. I was too far away to get the numbers.

Car 6190 has moved to the UP and car 6187 is now on the Milwaukee District. Both are former BNSF coaches.

Sure seems like a lot of space for just a few bicycles. I would think having the racks diagonal and tilting slightly upwards might make better use of the space.
