The BNSF runs a daily container train in each direction, the east terminal is Hodgkins, Illinois. I think it is a forty-four hour run.  Along that route, where do the crews change and where are the engines fueled?  Thank you, John in Lansing, ILL

Is Hodgkins, exclusively a UPS intermodal yard?

I ask because I live in Central Illinois and all my UPS Ground packages, from anywhere in the country seem to pass through Hodgkins, according to UPS tracking app.

Once, on a drive to Chicago, I detoured to Hodgkins and found an intermodal yard that also had lots of  UPS trucks and trailers.
