    I woke up on the 29th to see many emails on my phone. As I went through them I saw UP1982 and NS1069 would be leading a H-LINKCK. I thought that it was a false report as UP1982 (Missouri Pacific) was Washington bound on an intermodal. I knew 1069 was in Lincoln, but didn't know why or where it was going. There is an interesting story on how these two ended up together. I found this "story" on one of the heritage groups. This is copied and pasted, I don't know the exact person who said/did this, but here it is.
    "I walked into my friends "office" early yesterday evening just on time to hear him in a 3-way discussion with the Diesel shop and the yard master at BNSF's Hobson yard in Lincoln NE, discussing how it would be possible to pull the 1982 off the S-LPCTAC train that it was currently coming inbound on. After he got done with his conversation, I asked him if he were aware that the NS 1069 was also sitting somewhere in the yard and this started the planning process.
    Fast Forward to this morning, I met him back at Lincoln yard at 0500 and watched as the Hostler/pilot team tied the 1069 into the 1982 and placed them on a specially prepared LINKCK."
    That is exactly how both UP Heritage and NS Heritage ended up on the same KCK bound train. This is the first time ever that a UP heritage unit has teamed up with a NS heritage unit. I believe this is also the first video on TheXvid of such event. Now on to the actual footage. The first shot is of UP1982 charging into Parkville with NS 1069 trailing. My initial intention was to set up my tripod and not pan the camera. Well I left my tripod at home and backup camera was with me. I know I cut the nose of the Virginian off in the first shot. I didn't make the same mistake in the second shot. The second shot is taken in Riverside, MO. This is a quiet zone, but as the MoPac approaches the crossing the light I had been depending on. (Streetlight) decides its time to go out... Oh well, I think that these were the best shots I could have gotten under the circumstances. Hopefully next time they decide to come in daylight.
    Enjoy! Thanks for watching!!!

      He may take H-GALCWY afterwards whichs turns into NS 10R when it hits Streator,IL

      Then I think they will run a H-BARGAL then 1069 will be back on the NS.

    Nice job Chris, and I see what you mean about the panning. You made up for it on the second one though!

    Sweet catch Chris! Hopefully someday a NS heritage and a UP heritage will team up again and go through here.

    Wow, first time NS and UP heritage teamed up on the same train. I guess that makes this the lash-up of the year. Thanks for posting that story, I hadn't seen that.
    Also, since 1982 has the "Screaming Eagle" logos on its side, and 1069 looks like a bumblebee, I guess this makes this train "the Birds and the Bee."

      Thanks! I don't think it wins of the year award, and haha.
