    I still like the Cascade Green locomotives better, but those freshly painted SD75Ms don't look bad. Did BNSF get all their paint fading issues corrected?

    I corrected the diesel model in your post. Those new repaints are former SD75I's that BNSF now calls SD75M's.

    I guess time will tell if BNSF has resolved the paint fading issues. I have not seen any green & apricot/peach units lately.

    Friday afternoon (1-26-16) was cold, windy, and dark..... but at least it wasn't raining.

    Southbound (tt/west) freight rounds Pt. Edwards as taken from Marina Beach Park. Sometimes the Pt. Edwards eagles perch in the trees above the tracks.

    And sometimes they perch on the telephone poles beside the tracks. Southbound empty oil tanker passes the marsh.

    The power of a southbound (tt/west) freight passing the off-leash dog park at Marina Beach Park Friday afternoon (2-2-18) looked like something out of the late 60's-early 70's.

    Passenger trains are back in service. The Seattle bound Empire Builder (Amtrak #7) was about three hours late and pullled by a BNSF freight unit.

    The 4:30pm Seattle-Everett Sounder was on time.

    I often hand my son a camera with a wide angle lens to photograph passing trains when we are at the marsh photographing birds. Saturday afternoon (2-10-18) he took some shots of a southbound (tt/west) freight with my old 7D + 17-35L wide angle zoom. The lens is an old one that I bought used. The sides of the photo look soft, so I wonder if it is time to upgrade. My favorite wide angle zoom is my 24-105L. It works fine with my full frame sensor cameras, but I need a wider zoom for my cameras with crop frame sensors.

    Repainted GP60M-3 #156 was the trailing unit of a southbound (tt/west) that passed by the marsh on a sunny Sunday afternoon (2-11-18).

    Valentine's Day (2-14-18) I missed getting shots of two interesting trains: a northbound (tt/east) Boeing empty pulled by four Geeps, one of which was still in Cascade green; and the Chicago bound Empire Builder (Amtrak #8) pulled by three units, one of which was an EMD unit in Amtrak colors. I had to settle for shots of the 4:30 Sounder passing the marsh as a cloud bank rolled over Puget Sound and blotted out the late afternoon sun.

    My son's shot with the 5DIII + 24-105L wide angle zoom.

    Friday afternoon (2-16-18) I mounted my super telephoto package (7DII + 500L telephoto + 1.4x TC) on a tripod to photograph birds at the marsh. I got bored with the omni present great blue herons and attempted artsy shots of an approaching northbound (tt/east) empty garbage train.

    There is a chance of snow for tomorrow. If that happens, I'll be outside for photos.
