    Now 156 is here, too. Not sure why we are getting the GP60M-3s since I see a lot of rebuilt GP39-3s here, too. The number of hills on main and branch lines might be a good answer about the extra 1800 hp over the GP39-3s being the big plus. With the rebuilds and repaints, less and less engines, with the old paint schemes, are out there so get those pictures now. I saw a Santa Fe painted C-44-9W, BNSF 638 on a oil train on Thursday and some really old SD70Ms, still in original BN paint, on various trains. Traffic is up so stored engines are coming out to add their horsepower to the fleet.

    Been there before with the NP ---> BN ---> BNSF. Like the man says, get those photos now!

    Now quite a pair at Interbay is a GP 60M-3 and an old SW together as a switching locomotive set. Saw it Friday but didn’t see what numbers they were.

    I saw 156 pass through Edmonds Sunday afternoon (2-11-18) as the trailing unit of a southbound (tt/west). I'll post photos up in my MP 17 thread in the western US forum.

    I saw these engines coming into Chicago on the Santa Fe mainline back when they were brand new in War Bonnet colors.

    Model ID-ing is easy when BNSF paints it on the diesel.
