    I saw that and was like "what da hell?", so did some searching.

    It seems BNSF is painting a series of covered hoppers with heritage logos on them. From what I was able to find out they have already done 7. Three for the GN -BNSF 477432, 477433, 489368, three for Frisco - BNSF 480539, 483110, 486742 and the SP&S - BNSF 482554.

    Not many pictures out there yet but I did find two. http://i1156.photobucket.com/albums/...t/IMAG0084.jpg

    When I saw it I said Holy #$%^, stopped, and got out of my truck and took the photo

    Thanks for the info on the other cars, with all the grain trains I see going thru, chances are I will run across them sometime

    There is at least one of the heritage hoppers with a green BN logo on it running around now. I had that car in my train in early December. I can't remember the number, though.

    Here are the roadnames the cars will be painted for, three of each:

    Great Northern
    Spokane Portland & Seattle
    Northern Pacific Railway
    Frisco
    Colorado & Southern
    Burlington Route
    Denver Road
    Burlington Northern
    Santa Fe
