    NS AC44C6M #4000, CITX SD70M-2 #141, and NS sister #4001 haul empty XCLX hoppers towards Alliance, NE, for a crew change before heading up to North Antelope Mine via BNSF.

    Donkey Creek Junction, Wyoming, is where they have a staging yard for empty coal trains waiting to head to the mines via Orin Sub. Some UP-serviced mines are featured as well. Black Thunder and North Antelope are examples.

    The coal is moved to places hundreds of miles away from this route before it is unloaded.

    This is primarily a coal-hauling route between Alliance and Donkey Creek. There are no coal-fired plants anywhere as far as I know along the ORIN LINE. But Superior, WI, Fergus Falls, MN, Becker, MN and Cohasset, MN are examples of unloading spots on its service.

    Yes, I have the V1.03 of the ORIN LINE, I added US1Tracks textures to the route to make it more realistic. Here's BNSF SD70ACe #9274 leading a local out of Gillette, WY.
