Engineer Jack L. Scott had just brought a train of 111 empty coal cars 190 miles from Ravenna to Alliance, Nebraska. The empties were on their way to the Powder River Basin coal district in southeast Montana and northeast Wyoming. Scott hired out on the railroad as an electrician in 1971 but went into engine service in 1974. He retired in 1997, and in 2008 was living in Alliance. The photo was taken by the late Richard J. Cook on September 26, 1983, and published in the October 21, 1983 issue of “The Locomotive Engineer,” at the time the Brotherhood’s official monthly newspaper. The image appeared in the Center for Railroad Photography & Art's exhibition at the Carnegie Arts Center in Alliance, Nebraska, in 2008.
