    Yeah they're still in service, but half the time. The other half the time they're sitting in CEECO waiting for a new engine

    For a while last year you would have been hard pressed to NOT find one of those suckers dead in CEECO.

    A highly reliable BNSF source indicates that the order is for 70 SD70ACe's, no more no less. On the other hand, there is an order for 240 GE ES44AC's for delivery this year as well.

    I hear the CP 9300s are in local service, and from the one I saw last summer, it looks true!
    I wonder what BNSF's SD70s will look like..there's never been a BN EMD with flared radiators before..

    That all depends.... If you count the RLM SD40-2's, the SD40-2 rebuilt with a SD45 rear carbody section and the SD45's BN had, then I'd have to say BN did have EMD's with flared radiators.

    Yeah, BNSF 7023 and 7890 both have flared radiators.

    Thats the 4300 hp sd90's, numbered in the 91xx range.......theyre always at CEECO......the CP 9300's ( all 4 of them ) generally don't stray far from Winnipeg......they're usually on Winnipeg-Thunder Bay trains.....

    Yeah, Winnepeg-thunder bay is exactly right, in local service becuase they don't want to haul them dead from Vancouver!
    And I can't belive I forgot about the SD45!
