Video: BNSF cranes load intermodal trains

BNSF Railway has 25 intermodal facilities around its 32,500-mile network. At these facilities, we use cranes to load containers on and off trains for further movement on the railroad or movement by trucks to their final destinations. These containers carry products you use every day like electronics, clothes and appliances. BNSF's wide-span electric cranes, used at some locations, produce zero emissions on site, and even use gravity to generate electricity while they work.
