Got these today while waiting in Miami, TX for MofW equipment to arrive.

Lead unit on eastbound COFC/TOFC; bad paint or she has been working hard!

Still pretty even with the BNSF sticker under the road number!

That 4579 looks like it was working hard and burned a bit. All nice catches.

Yes, it's been a long time for me... If anyone remembers. :)

Great pictures. I have a question about BNSF1741 & 1661, there is a flat platform looking thing over the cab windows I am not sure of. Is that something for the AC or like BNSF 1743, looks like antennas for remote operations or maybe DPU? I've been away from the tracks for a long time, I need to catch up to things... :)

Interesting... Thanks Bill, I wasn't sure about that, I don't believe I've seen them before until now. I would have thought something different for that function, but... :) Thanks again.
